Gynx Yarns Picks: Hitchhiker.

I enjoyed picking out yarns I'd use from the Gynx Yarns stash for the Color Affection Shawl so much that I've decided to make it a regular feature around here. This week, I decided to choose which yarns I'd use for the Hitchhiker pattern by Martina Behm. I've already blogged about this pattern here, where I showed the one I knit out of some yarn from this year's Fiber Fest.

The first colorway that popped into my head was Spirited Away #2. What's really great about the Hitchhiker pattern is that the garter stitch helps break up all the colors, and variegated colorways look great in it. This would be a bit of a bright/bold choice, but it would be such a fun piece.

 Changing Foliage would be a very fall-ish choice.

The jewel tones in Jewel Box would make a very luxurious-looking Hitchhiker.

Which colorway would you choose? Or would you pick a completely different colorway from the Gynx Yarns collection?


  1. That "Spirited Away" is excellent choice for Hitchhiker! I do like "Jewel Box" too, but if I hadn't as much yarn as I have, I could have bought skein or two, but now I have to resist spirited call... By the way, I am waiting a new pattern from Veera Välimäki to be published in August as a specialty club in association with Finnish yarn dealer Titityy ;)

  2. Hi! Visiting from twitter...that yarn is gorgeous! And the pattern looks like something I would actually wear...think I had better queue that up...

  3. They are all lovely, but if you are going to make it for me...I choose a spirited away.
