Snow Drops Mod Scarf - A Free Crochet Pattern

I've really been enjoying one skein projects lately!  With the busy holiday schedule, it is just so much easier to pick up and put down a one skein project!

The Snow Drops Mod Scarf is a super-stylish one skein project that would make a perfect gift!  This scarf is made with the star stitch with makes a beautiful-snowflake like texture.  Combine that with the icy colors of Caron Cakes "Faerie Cake" yarn and this scarf is perfect for winter!  I even have a video tutorial to get you started learning the star stitch :)

Pattern Notes

  • Chain stitches at the beginning of rows do not count as a stitch
  • Increases and decreases will all happen on the the same side of the scarf.  This will create the triangular shape.
