We don’t know what cracks us up the most about this pattern, whether it has 42 TEETH or that it’s named after The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy! Either way, meet this glorious Hitchhiker Shawlette by Martina Behm (we haven’t met a Martina Behm pattern we haven’t liked!). This narrow, slightly asymmetrically shaped triangular shawlette can be wrapped around your neck several times. Guest Instructor and S&B knit night ringleader MaryAnne Teal will lead you through this saw-tooth wonder in 2 sessions from 3 to 5 p.m. on Thursdays, Feb. 2 & 16.
Materials can be purchased at the shop for 10% off after you have registered. The class is limited to 6 people. You can register for this class by stopping by the shop or calling us at (757) 345-3655.

What you will learn: Kfb increase, casting off in the middle of a piece to create zig-zag edge to the shawl
