The Snow Drops Mod Scarf is a modern one skein triangle scarf that highlights the stunning texture of the star stitch. You can make this scarf with just one skein of Caron Cakes yarn or with any worsted weight yarn you have in your stash. Keep reading for the free crochet pattern.
When I first published this pattern it was one of my first scarf patterns on my blog. I now have A LOT more. But this one will always be one of my favorites for many reasons. It was the start of my whole Snow Drops pattern collection, and over all these years it has remained one of the most popular free crochet patterns on my blog. This year, to celebrate my blog anniversary, I decided to crochet another Snow Drops Mod Scarf so that I could take some new pictures and also try making it in a solid color.
Crochet this Mod Scarf with the Star Stitch
The original Snow Drops Mod Scarf was made with Caron Cakes. I still have it. I still wear it. I still love it! So many of you have shown me your finished scarves in solid colors that I decided I wanted a solid, neutral version for myself as well. In both versions, the texture of the star stitch shines (pun intended just a little bit).
Once you get the hang of the star stitch (with the video tutorial included below) this pattern works up quickly with a 4 row repeat. This pattern is easy enough for an advanced beginner looking to learn a new stitch. And after you master the star stitch, you’ll probably want to make some matching pieces for yourself.
The Snow Drops Free Crochet Pattern Collection
As I mentioned above, the Snow Drops pattern collection is one of my most popular set of free crochet patterns on my blog. Since you all have loved it so much I’ve designed a lot of coordinating pieces for you to work on after you finish your Snow Drops Mod Scarf:
