Can’t wait for spring? Here’s the shawl for you: Magrathea was the fourth pattern I created using the Hitchhiker shape, this time with an intricate lace border that grows during the knitting on one side and extends across all stitches to form the final border.

For my book “The Hitchhiker Collection”, we have knit a sample out of the beautiful “Sarah Tweed” by BC Garn: a silk yarn with an unusual, beautiful texture that is light but not slippery. In my book, you will find written-out instructions for the very first time for this pattern, as well as charts. Find the book and the yarn in Strickmich! Shop.
