Hi! This is Kami. Be sure to come join me over on Instagram and say Hi.
The team here at Cre8tion Crochet decided to focus some of our content for the next couple months on Megan of Left in Knots. Her husband’s cancer journey has taken away from her ability to work this holiday season. You can read more about her story on Instagram. My contribution is a three part pattern review series that I am calling Mondays for Megan. I am also hoping to continue on my Instagram sharing one of her patterns I have made every Monday through Christmas.
Megan of Left in Knots is well known in the crochet community for her water balloon pattern and her vintage red truck blankets. She also has brought us Seven Days of Scarfie for several years. All Megan’s patterns are free to view on the Left in Knots Website. I chose to purchase the ones that I’m featuring to help support her family, you can find her patterns on Ravelry.
The first design that I’m sharing is one of her oldest and most popular patterns, the Snowdrop Mod Scarf. She has quite a few scarf patterns available on her website. I love the Autumn Chill Super Scarf, which is her most popular scarf pattern; unfortunately, it just doesn’t get cold enough here to justify making one. If infinity scarves are more your style take a look at the Gingersnap Scarf. For a more unique style, I like the Morning Frost Scarf; worked up as a rectangle with fancy tassel fringe. I chose the Snowdrop scarf because I love the star stitch that it featured in this pattern. If you love the star stitch too, she has a whole Snowdrop collection including a hat, mittens and slipper socks. Carrie from Mountain Momma Crochet has a review for the Coffee Bean Ear Warmer. Plus, check out the Designer Showcase by Emily from Crochet Aweigh.
I chose this pattern partly because of the star stitch. It has amazing texture with the star stitch alternating with the half double crochet. And because of those fun tassels. Obviously many others from the crochet community feel the same because there are over 100 projects on ravelry for this scarf. Not to mention it has been favorited over 2000 times! This is one of her most popular patterns and I can definitely see why.
What Materials Do You Need to Crochet a Triangle Scarf?
- 440 yards Caron Cakes (#4 Worsted Weight Yarn) in Buttercream
- I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook
- Tapestry Needle
- Tassel Maker (optional)
- Snowdrops Mod Scarf Pattern free on Left in Knots Website
I used the same yarn as the designer but in a different colorway. Caron Cakes is 80% Acrylic and 20% wool, so if you’re making for someone with wool sensitivities you’ll have to substitute. Megaball Aran from Hobbi or Red Heart Comfort are good solid color options for substitutions. Cascade Anthem Rondo available at LoveCrafts is a very close self striping yarn option. With all the projects using this pattern on Ravelry, I’m sure you can find plenty of substitution ideas there as well. Although Megan says that this pattern only uses one cake, I found that I needed more for mine.
A tassel maker is helpful here, but you can do it without. I used a deck of uno cards to wrap my yarn around but you could also use a small book or a piece of cardboard cut to your desired length.
How Long Does it Take to Crochet a Triangle Scarf?
It took me about four and a half hours to make this scarf. This includes the time to crochet the whole length and make and add the tassels.
6′ 2″ in length not including tassels
12″ at the widest point
The designer does not provide a gauge for this project. My gauge was 14 hdc stitches x 10 pattern rows is equal to 4″ unblocked.
I really like the shaping on this scarf and the tassels are a fun addition!
Unfortunately, the designer did not include a gauge for this pattern. The finished measurements are also pretty vague, just stating that it’s approximately 6 feet long. This pattern would be a little more difficult to adjust, but if you needed it to be longer you could add some additional rows in the middle without increases. If you needed it shorter you could take out a few rows in the middle, but it would also affect the width. You would also have to know your desired length beforehand so that you could make the adjustments when you got to the middle.
Overall though I really enjoyed making this scarf and would definitely make it again.
