Garter stitch. It‘s simple, its warm and squishy, stretchy and reversible and it makes any variegated, hand-dyed sockyarn really shine. So here‘s Hitchhiker: It is a narrow, slightly asymmetrically shaped triangular shawlette that can be wrapped around the neck several times. The ends are long enough to tie it with a knot. One of the short sides of the triangle features a saw-tooth border that evolves naturally during the knitting and gives the shawl its unusual shape. Because the knitting starts at one end, you can stop anytime, bind off and end up with a useful neckerchief, shawlette or shawl. A perfect project to relax in between more complicated ones, also very suitable for beginners and young knitters.
The name? Well, if you use a 150g Wollmeise, you can make how many teeth? That‘s right, 42. The answer to the question about the universe and everything, according to Douglas Adams‘ wonderful book "The Hitchhiker‘s Guide to the Galaxy“. So don‘t forget your towel, and happy knitting!

I have no complaints regarding the purchase of this pattern. I was able to purchase it without any difficulty and download it within a few minutes. With Easter and all the prep there I've not had time to knit the scarf but I have friends who have knitted it previously and I love the pattern.
This was an easy to knit, fun to wear scarf with a difference.
