Hitchhiker - Finished!

yarma
I finished up my first Hitchhiker this weekend.  I say “first” because I’ll definitely do it again.  This was a fun project, perfect for tired evenings in front of the TV.  I got a total of 39 “teeth” on the edge of my Hitchhiker.  (The original pattern has 42, naturally.)  The finished shape is a narrow triangle, and I think it looks best worn as a scarf.  I love the way the gradient colors worked out and it still reminds me of Fruit Loops!  Here’s a link to my Ravelry page for the project, if you’re interested.

I think this pattern will work well in some stash yarns I have that I know are going to pool (Lorna’s Laces, I’m looking at you) and it should give a completely different look.

I’m going to knit a couple of other things before I jump into another Hitchhiker, but I know I’ll be knitting another one of these soon!

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that isn't a Lorna's Laces pooling fan. :)
Your Hitchhiker looks great!
