Two weeks ago, I finished up my hitchhiker scarf. I absolutely love it.
Depending on the light it’s photographed in, the color tone changes, I love it.
This yarn, I picked up while in British Columbia back in 2010. It’s by Sweet Georgia and it’s called Boheme. I picked it up thinking it would end up being a baby girl sweater, but the baby that was in my belly, turned out to be a boy instead. So, I decided that I’d make myself something instead. A girl can’t have enough scarves/shawls, right?
I started this scarf back in February, and worked on other things at the same time. The problem with this pattern is it does kind of get boring after a while, as it’s mainly just knit, knit, knit, knit, with a different first or last stitch, and a little change up on every 8th row. I used a worsted weight yarn instead of the fingering weight that the pattern calls for and used 4.5mm (US7) needles. I used an entire 2 skeins of yarn, and while the pattern calls for making 41 “teeth”, I only got 30 out of the 2 skeins of yarn, but that was absolutely okay with me, as this scarf is large enough and I probably would have stopped making teeth even if I had more yarn. I loved knitting up this pattern and I definitely recommend it. Easy to follow and great in my books! I might even knit it up again sometime.
