Beach Peas Möbius cowl is designed as a part of a set with Beach Peas Tam. A carefully selected stitch pattern makes this accessory totally reversible.
The main part of the cowl is worked in a long strip (like a scarf) starting with provisional cast-on, then the ends of the knitted piece are joined after giving it a half twist to make a Möbius loop and grafted together for a seamless look. Finally, the trim is worked in-the-round by picking up stitches along the side edges of the cowl.
If you are not familiar with grafting or prefer to join the ends with buttons, the pattern includes an instruction to make a cowl with a button closure instead.
This infinity cowl can be worn draped around your shoulders or looped around the neck twice for a comfortable, cozy fit.
