Convertible Mod Scarf
For the convertible mod scarf, I used one cake of Mandala yarn. I played “yarn chicken” with the cake, and it worked out perfectly, right down to the tassels!

The convertible mod scarf measures 80″ long without tassels. And since it uses a #3 weight yarn, it’s pretty lightweight for early spring. Mandala yarn comes in so many beautiful colors–Unicorn being my favorite.
In fact, I might have to work this up in the new Comfy Cotton yarn by Lion Brand! They also have new Ombre cakes that would look amazing with this pattern.
If you don’t like self-striping yarn, you can also make this up in a single color. You will need 590 yards to do so.

Easy to Work Up
The convertible mod scarf features steady increases and decreases to get the shape. The shape allows you to wear this as a hooded scarf, hooded cowl, super scarf, super cowl, or a shawlette. That’s why it’s called a
convertible! Sorry kiddos, this scarf is for Mommy!
If you prefer pdf versions, ours also has a version for you to work this pattern up in a DK version – which is perfect for the Autumn and Spring months!
To work this stitch: *Yo, insert hook into indicated st, yo, pull up a loop*, rep from *to*, yo, pull thru all 7 loops on hook, ch1. Chain 1 at the end of this stitch DOES count as a stitch for the purposes of this pattern, so be sure to skip a stitch after doing the bean stitch before going on to the next stitch.
To work this stitch: Skip the next stitch, work a DC in the next, and work another DC in the skipped stitch going behind the DC just made.
Although gauge is not strictly important here, it should be somewhere about this. 19 dc’s across=4”, 4 rows =2”
The finished piece measures approximately 80″ across and 14″ wide.
*to*–Repeat the instructions written between the two *
YO—yarn over DC2TOG–Double Crochet two together
- Chain 2 at the beginning does count as a dc.
- When working the texture rows, be sure to skip a stitch after each bean stitch worked because to finish off the bean stitch, you must chain 1 which creates an extra stitch, so in order to keep the balance, skip a stitch under the chain 1 and work your next bean stitch in the next stitch.
- The PDF Pattern has been written for both a lightweight (DK/#3) yarn and a medium-weight (Aran/#4/worsted) yarn. This pattern is for the #4 weight version.
