I couldn’t resist, once I frogged the unfortunate project, the yarn just jumped back on the needles!
And so, a new Hitchhiker was born! There are almost 25,000 Hitchhikers on Ravelry?!? That’s a lot of garter stitch! This is my 10th Hitchhiker, so obviously, I get the fandom! The Hitchhiker is certainly worthy of all it’s praise.
That said, I still love discovering new ways to modify the pattern. My last Hitchhiker incorporated a row of eyelets on row 8. I’m taking that modification one step further this time. I’m beading each K2tog from row 8 on row 1.
Rainbow on rainbow action! I’m loving it! Of course, I’m still setting myself up for problems down the line. I’m most certainly going to run out of beads before I run out of yarn. Oh well. I can’t get more so I’m knowingly accepting this problem.
I’ve also created a right side and a wrong side–or at least a beaded side and a side with no beads. I’m okay with that too. In the end, anything is better than curling stockinette.
