Hitchhiker Beyond

finished Hitchhiker Beyond
January 2017
Last month, Julie gave Cheryl a gorgeous shawl/scarf - a Hitchhiker Beyond. Unlike the asymetrical  Hitchhiker, this pattern is triangular and the "teeth" are the straight, neck edge of the shawl. I was intrigued and purchased the pattern on Ravelry.

Hitchhiker Beyond was an evening project, and I listened to audiobooks while knitting. After two weeks of knitting, it came off of the needles last week. I haven't blocked it yet, so I'll post another photo when that's done.

Pattern: Hitchhiker Beyond (Ravelry link) by Martina Behm

Needles: US size 6

Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Select (African Grey) 4 oz/114 grams

Notes: Trust the pattern: the designer knows what she is doing! The notes on the pattern advised weighing the yarn before beginning; when a 1/3 of the yarn has been used, the decreases begin. I weighed and calculated and began knitting. I had 2 grams remaining. Weighing the yarn is important - don't trust the yarn label for an accurate weight.

The pattern is easy and fun to knit.


  1. Interesting twist on the hitchhiker pattern. Love the colors in yours - can't wait to see it all blocked out!! Congratulations on another finish!

  2. That yarn is sure pretty with all of the little touches of color.

  3. I hadn't heard of this pattern but will go look at it. I'm looking forward to seeing yours in its blocked state.

  4. Always appreciative of a well written pattern Nancy. Thanks. I love the yarn you used!

  5. I'm not a Hitchhiker fan, but I do love the yarn you used!


I love comments!
