Hitchhiker Shawl


I finished the hitchhiker shawl!  I must say this was a delightful knit and I can see why everyone keeps knitting this pattern over and over again.  I enjoyed how quickly I memorized the pattern and of course how each section took a little bit longer than the last section.  My love of garter stitch grows a little bit more every time I have a project that showcases this simple stitch design.

I did have enough yarn for 41 teeth AND I had yarn left over.  Phew!  Most of you loyal readers have knit this shawl but if you are a lone reader who hasn't you might want to give it a try one day.

  9. Terrific finish, Karen. I like how the Hitchhiker pattern enables one to use variegated yarn and get wonderful results in the end.

  11. That color is just gorgeous and makes for a lovely Hitchhiker. I highly recommend the variation where on every row 6, you purl one and then (yo, K2tog) until you knit one or two at the end.

  12. Beautiful Karen, such a great pattern and lovely colour. Gerard is finally on the mend, he had a steroid injection which made him feel a little better. Sorry to read about your injury you are in our prayers. Take care.

  15. Aren't they fun? I knit one but when the right skein of yarn comes along I'll probably knit another.
