Thank goodness this one required no emergency room knitting, as did its predecessor:
Pattern: Hitchhiker Scarf by Martina Behm
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug, in the older, smaller put up: 320 yards. The colour reminds me of an opal. Its flecks of rose, blue and green making it quite versatile. Difficult to spot in the photo.
Needles: US 5
Thoughts: Again, I think the design is brilliant. Very easy pattern produces super sproingy fabric in an interesting shape, when knit in sockweight yarns like Cherry Tree Hill, Wollmeise, Koigu, Claudia Hand Paints, Colinette Jitterbug, or anything made from a Louet gems type yarn. Don't worry, even the sock yarns with under the required amount of length makes an acceptable drapey scarf. This one ended up with 33 points instead of the pattern's 41. That's about as small as I'd recommend for this pattern.
Update: I don't know why, but the search engines keep pointing people for a free copy of the Hitchhiker pattern through my blog. My free pattern is the Herringbone Rib scarf, available by requesting it through the comments on any post. I don't have the rights to the Hitchhiker scarf, but it can be purchased through the designer here:http://strickmich.frischetexte.de/en It's well worth the price.
