A warm and cozy moebius cowl with an easy dropped stitch pattern to show off the beauty of variegated yarn. The pattern creates a rather solid fabric, which is easy to transform into a more lacy style. Ideas for variations are given on page 4 of the pattern.

A moebius is a twisted loop with only one surface and only one edge, which is knit from the middle outwards, adding stitches on each side of the cast on.

There are different ways to cast-on for a moebius cowl; instructions for the moebius cast-on are not provided with the pattern. My favourite moebius cast-on is the one by Cat Bordhi. There is a fantastic video by Cat Bordhi on YouTube: “Intro to Moebius Knitting”. It will guide you through the moebius cast-on and the first row in no time, even if you have never knit a moebius before.

My examples were knit in Malabrigo Yarn Sock.
