Up Helly Aa Hap Kit

Jamieson & Smith
Shopping Satisfaction

Kit to make the Orange version of the Up Helly Aa Hap, for over 45 years Betsy has thought about a hap with Viking galleys/longships but it never came to fruition, this is the design which Elizabeth and her mother came up with. The hap features the galleys sitting upon the waves with the torches from the Up Helly Aa procession above. The centre represents the flames of the burning galley on its way to Valhalla. Up Helly Aa is a Viking fire festival; they take place in Shetland beginning in January, to celebrate the end of winter and the coming of spring.

The kit contains yarn and pattern. If you would prefer a different colour add the pattern and 13 balls of the yarn to your basket separately.
