Part of the mystery of Möbius construction is that it is
neither bottom–up nor top–down, but more like “cast–on–
out.” The cowl begins with an orderly central “spine” of a
cast–on from which emanate the sensual flames which later
dissolve into an almost completely open fabric with little
weight. Wear it wide over your shoulders, hanging straight
down in a big “U,” up over your head as a hood, doubled
around your neck, or in some other way I haven’t thought
of. You may not be mad, but when you tell admirers that
you knit it, everyone will think you have “mad skills.”
