I wanted to knit a Hitchhiker for myself. I had bought the yarn for the project on the yarn crawl last summer and I just need to do it. With all the holiday knitting and crocheted owls done, it was time to knit that Hitchhiker. I used a brightly colored DK weight cotton yarn and size 6 needles. I found after awhile I got a little addicted to knitting the points on the pattern. The pattern calls for 42 points or teeth on one edge of the pattern. (For the Douglas Adams fans out there, yes both the pattern name and the number of points are in reference to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.) As is often the case, I knit mine large and added a few extra teeth, because I had the yarn.
