Airplane Mode PDF
Airplane Mode by Elizabeth Smith is a simple, cozy scarf/shawlette knit up in 2 different colorways of the fun Berroco Dash yarn - a fluffy, chainette-construction yarn (that is so light & airy!) with bright ‘dashes’ of colors throughout.
Why “Airplane Mode”? Because when you knit this piece, it’s simplicity allows you to relax and disconnect a bit (like turning your phone to ‘airplane mode’), and, since you never know where the colorful dashes will end up, you’re like an observant passenger just enjoying the ride!
It features a slip stitch edging, m1 increases to grow the scarf out in a triangle shape, and a pretty broken rib border. Pattern includes link to a ‘tips page’ for lots of tips & tutorials for making your own.
