Hitchhiker's Birthday was developed in coordination with Martina Behm to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Hitchhiker pattern. This colorway is light, bright, and uplifting with speckles of pink, orange, yellow, and blue, plus some gentle tints of those colors across the creamy base. We are thrilled to have this colorway featured on the cover of The Hitchhiker Collection book!
This colorway is a Babette: every skein and every batch is a bit different, but Babs has a method of recreating these artistic colorways. The photograph is an example of representative skeins from this colorway; the skein you receive may differ somewhat. If you have any questions about the color, please give us a call or email to ask for a photo - we are always happy to describe our current batch for you to make sure it meets your needs!
