Hitchhiker - $15

Saturday, August 20th; 2-4p

Since its release in 2010, Martina Behm's "Hitchhiker" has been one of the most popular knitting patterns on Ravelry, with over 24,000 projects logged.  The soothing repetition of garter stitch makes this project great for traveling or when you need a little mindless knitting.  In this class, students will get their shawls started and work through the first several pattern repeats together.  While fingering-weight yarn is recommended, this pattern works well in different yarns, so feel free to experiment!

  • Approx. 600 yards of fingering-weight yarn OR 3 colors of Ito Urugami
