Hitchhiker Schal

Mein Hitchhiker-Schal ist fertig und er liegt wunderschön um die Schultern an.
Gefunden habe ich das Muster bei Farbenfaden, ein tolles blog für Leute, die Strickanregungen (und Wolle) brauchen.
Ich weiss, mein Bild ist schlecht und gelegentlich wird es ausgetauscht. Ich habe 100 g Regia "Hand-dye Effect"
verarbeitet und mit 3,5 mm Nadeln gestrickt.
I saw this pattern here - if you want to see a beautiful blog go there and have a look.
You start with five purl stitches (I made it like that) - in the beginning of every row I added 2 stitches - after 10 rows you bind off 5 stitches at the end of the row - that is how the prongs are created. And you purl all the way to and fro.
(Now my English readers, if I make mistakes, please let me know - this is my first knitting pattern which I am writing in English)


  1. This looks funny and easy to knit. Luckily you don't need it with this lovely weather!

  2. I will have to check back...my crochet /knitting skills are limited but I do LOVE this look! Have a great weekend! Peace, Mary Helen

  3. This is a very interesting pattern. Sounds easy enough, I think even I could do it. Would like to see a picture of the maker wearing it:-) Your translations are better than Bing.... Di.

  4. I happened to see your shawl on the sidebar of your blog and...well, here I am! I understand the directions perfectly! I will have to give it a go! I have only one question: How thick was your wool?

  5. Oops! Nevermind my question in my previous comment! I just looked at the German and saw the 100 grams with 3.5 mm needle! Got it! I can understand German if I take my time and read slowly. :)

  6. This looks very fashionable and warm. Wish I was a knitter I could try it.
