Original Pattern: Hitchhiker
Knitter Extraordinaire: Yvette Rose (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Changed the shawl to a stripe pattern using three different colourways, and used an i-cord edging to hide the yarn changes. Great details are on her project page, including step by step instructions for the i-cord edging, can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: This pattern looks amazing in the bold solid stripes that Yvette Rose chose, and her solution for hiding the colour changes (and avoiding weaving in all those ends) is brilliant. The i-cord edging camouflages the carried yarn, so she not only didn’t have to cut the yarn and weave it in, it produced a wonderfully professional-looking edging. If you are thinking about add stripes to a shawl pattern (or blankets/scarves), this is a great technique to keep in mind.
