Easy Mobius Cowl
NOTE: Pattern updated Sept 9, 2014. Changes are mostly aesthetic.
The pattern is very simple, fast, and satisfying for time when you just need to produce something FAST. It is knit in the round using a really long circular needle and a nifty little cast on just for mobius knitting. To learn this easy new skill you can watch Cat Bordhi’s great Intro to Mobius Knitting tutorial on you tube. Cat’s instructions are clear and easy to follow and you’ll be an expert in no time! The yarn we’ve used is hand-painted. It is soft and has a slight sheen because of it’s silk content. Please note that silk has a tendency to grow with wear, so if you want your cowl bigger I suggest you block it bigger and if you want it smaller either subtract some sts from the cast on or reduce your needle size. That said, the look is big, loose and casual and it’s easy to go with the flow of this garment.
