Bumble Hap crochet pattern - digital or hard copy


Bumble is a versatile pattern that can be worked up in 200g as a half hap/triangular shawl, or 400g as a more traditional full hap shape that can be work doubled over for extra cosiness.

With subtle honeycomb shapes, it’s a nod to the beauty of bee architecture.

Yarn: Ammonite by Daughter of a Shepherd; 100g/ 400m/ 437yds; 50% Hebridean/ 50% Exmoor Blueface.

Half Hap (triangular) - 200g/ 800m/ 874yds

Hap (rhombus shaped) - 400g/ 1600m/ 1748yds


Hook: 4mm hook (US G/6)

Notions: 2 stitch marker, tapestry needle, blocking equipment

If you make this shawl, it would be great to see it on Instagram - #BumbleHap #FayDHDesigns

Construction:  Worked from the bottom-point up, with increases every row over a six-row sequence. The body of the triangular half hap finishes when up to 95%/ 190g of yarn has been used up.

The full hap is worked in the same way, swapping to decreases when up to 190g has been used and 210g remains unused. Decreases are also worked over a six-row sequence. The hap body is finished when the stitch count is back down to 9 stitches.

A simple border is added using double crochet and double slip stitches.


Half Hap (triangular) - maximum width of 151cm/ 59.5" and maximum depth of 79.5cm/ 31.5"

Hap (rhombus shaped) - maximum width of 151cm/ 59.5" and maximum depth of 159cm/ 62.25"

Stitches used (UK terminology): Herringbone treble, Starting trebles, crossed stitches, starting treble decrease, treble decrease, double crochet, double slip stitch. 

Pattern Support: Supporting images, charts and written pattern.  There is also a pattern Road Map so you can check off each row, check stitch counts and number of hexagon motifs within a repeat.  

The pattern also has an electronic link and QR code (for hardcopy versions) taking you to a specific Pattern Page for the Bumble Hap with links out to more in-depth photo and video tutorials for specific stitches. 

Yarn substitutes: Something with the same or very similar meterage.  It can be a different blend but be aware that meterage requirements will change if you substitute yarns.  

Blocking: This is a project that definitely benefits from blocking to open up the honeycomb motifs and create a lacey fabric.

Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating

Postage and Packaging

You can read all about P&P here.

The P&P costs applied are very transparent.  No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage.  I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods.  I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
