Hitchhiker Beyond - revisited

Hitchhiker Beyond
February 2017
I found these photos of Hitchhiker Beyond that came off of the needles in early February. Since I listened to Friction by Sandra Brown while knitting this shawl, a library photo shoot seemed an appropriate way to feature the finished shawl.

While blocking, I pinned the center point (top and bottom) and worked out from those points, keeping the top edge straight and the bottom edge at the correct angle.

I loved this pattern!  If you decide to knit the Hitchhiker Beyond, it's important to follow the designer's recommendation to weigh the yarn before you begin so you can calculate when to begin the decreases. I had 2 grams remaining

Pattern: Hitchhiker Beyond (Ravelry link) by Martina Behm

Needles: US size 6

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

The pattern is easy and fun to knit.


  1. That is one long shawl! Love the colors in your yarn - very pretty. How was "Friction?"

  2. I love a skinny shawl. Your match of yarn and pattern is wonderful Nancy.

  3. So pretty! I like the length on this one. I have a pretty shawl my cousin knit for me but it's really too short.

  4. It's beautiful! I love the idea of the library photo shoot!

  5. I love the Hitchhiker pattern, but I have yet to knit it. The color her is gorgeous.

  6. I love it and it looks so complicated to me...not a knitter. I love the warm rich color. Good job and I love looking at all your handi work!

  7. Lovely, at first I thought you were blocking it at the library. I was really impressed and then I used my brain, LOL. I will check out the book.

  8. Very pretty Nancy! I love the color of the yarn and pattern.

  9. Thanks for the reminder! I've never done even one Hitchhiker.
