Travel Mode 2.0

Travel Mode is a graphic rectangular shawl with a seamless modular construction that creates a herringbone pattern mirrored along a center panel. The shawl is knit in Garter stitch with Stockinette details and an i-cord finish. While designed for 1 main and 4 contrasting colors, the shawl can be knit with as many or as few colors as you wish, making it an excellent pattern for partial skeins, leftovers, or mini skeins as well.

The original version of the Travel Mode shawl was designed for the Frida Fuchs Advent Calendar 2021. It differs in the yarn base used (the original uses fluffy Lace as the main color), the colors required (the original uses 9 contrasting colors), the pattern/texture (the original has eyelet accents throughout), and the construction (there are 2 sections in the original version that are knit at a 90° angle to the rest of them, this is not in the version 2.0).

Thank you all so much for the warm welcome of TRAVEL MODE 2.0!

I’m so glad you love the design as much as me! 🥰

It’s such a fun construction and despite it being mostly knit in simple Garter stitch, the pattern never gets boring!

Have fun playing with colors! The perfect color combination may already live in your stash - just like the yarn I used for mine - and you just have to discover it.
Or combine some leftovers with a full skein for the main color, or why not head on over to your LYS and have fun discovering all the possibilities and maybe falling in love with a yarn or dyer you’ve never tried before. 💖

Oh, and if you’re one of the knitters who received the original version of the pattern through the Advent Calendar, you can use the code that you received to download that version for v2.0 as well! And if you can’t find it, please get in touch via email. Thanks!
