This cowl is knit from a true möbius cast-on. The two-sided staggered rib pattern is comprised of simple knit and purl stitches. Made with chunky yarn on large needles, this is a fast and easy knit, once the cast-on has been conquered.

The pattern was designed to resemble the Minotaur’s Labyrinth. Like the hero Theseus, knitters follow their own “clew” (ball of yarn) to escape the Labyrinth. This cowl was designed especially for the Granite State Knit-In XX at Loon Mountain.
