Knit Circus Blue Hitchhiker

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Hitchhiker Link to website or photo www.ravelry.com/designers/martina-behm What advice would you give someone starting this project? The Hitchhiker pattern is an easy one and I love the versatility of the shape. It's also a great pattern for hand dyed or long runs yarns. Jaala's yarn color is Andromeda and is a fingerling, superwash merino with little silver sparkly bits throughout. The charms are from Hobby Lobby, Metal Gallery #225870 Beaded Flower Garden. They cost $10 per pack and you get TONS of them in one package. Two colors come in the package. The other bead is a light, sort of robins egg blue. I'm saving those for another project. I bought 3 packages of beads as they were on sale for $3.60 a pack and just used the dark blue ones The back side is silver, which goes great with the sparkles of silver in the yarn. I add them as I knit along with a tiny crochet hook so I don't have to string them all on the yarn before I start knitting. Pop into the Craftsy Yarn Shop and look for fingerling weight 420 yards/384 meters. One skein or more if you want a larger scarf.

What you will need

  • Knit Circus yarn color in Andromeda and is a fingerling
  • superwash merino with little silver sparkly bits throughout.
