A Giant Hitchhiker
Martina Behm has graciously allowed me to do a sample of her classic pattern Hitchhiker in a Helix Giant Gradient. I choose the Cardoon colorway, and I love how it knitted up.
With thoughtful details and an easy-to-memorize pattern, this project makes for delightfully relaxing knitting.
The version photographed here used all but 10 g of the gradient, and has three more "teeth" than called for in the pattern.
Finished Size: 86 inches / 220 cm tip to tip, and is 13 inches / 33 cm deep at the center.

Needles: U.S. size 5 / 3.75 mm
