I’ve spent almost my entire life living in the Midwest and I may not always love how cold it can be, but I do love watching the snow fall and sparkle and as I’ve gotten older I have grown to actually look forward to the slow down that comes with Winter. The yarn originally used to create this scarf was a fluffy yarn that had little bits of sequence throughout it. It reminded me of snow.

Supplies Needed

  • Crochet Hook: 6.5mm/K. I love using Furls Hooks. They are so comfortable and I don’t get stressed hands or wrists like I once did.
  • Yarn: Originally I used Lion Brand's Winter Nights yarn to create this scarf. It was a very lightweight Worsted yarn, that felt more like a DK. They no longer sell this yarn, however, the yarn very much reminded me of a Suri or Mohair. You could use any DK or Worsted weight yarn to create this pattern, but I think it would be really amazing if you held 2 strands of Suri or Mohair together. You will need approximately 744 yards (680 meters). 


Stitch Abbreviations

  • Ch – chain
  • HDC – Half Double Crochet
  • Slst – Slip Stitch
  • YO – Yarn Over


Important Notes:

Gauge: Not super important, but if you are concerned you should be getting 7 Star Stitches (which is a Row 1 and 2 repeat) by 8 rows (Rows 1 and 2 together, creating 4 Star Stitch Rows) in a 4×4″ swatch

Finished Dimensions: 5.75 in / 14.5 cm wide by 80 in / 203cm long  

Notes: You will always slip stitch to the first stitch and not the chain when finishing your rows.
