One of the most popular patterns on Ravelry – Hitchhiker is fast and easy which makes it ideal for travel knitting. You start with ~ 100 gm of sock yarn and keep going till you run out – what could be simpler?
So I knit one.
And then I knit a couple more while traveling (this does not count those I made last spring) for a couple of our friends
Each one of which used a skein of Socks that Rock -lightweight.
I adore the pattern – garter stitch which makes it almost idiot proof for airplane knitting – and without a fixed width or length which makes it ideal for 100 gm single skeins of sock yarn.
Oh, and the name? Betina named it for Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Why? Well, the bind-off makes for little thumbs sticking up. Her original scarf had 42 of them…..
