Moebius knitting is a wondrously fascinating endeavour – you knit around and around to complete a beautiful loop scarf with a half twist in the construction. This half-twist provides the opportunity for some rather elegant fashion opportunities – scarf, shawl, cowl, double-wrap neck warmer…
The lace pattern is offset after the first repeat to create a more interesting line. If you wish the eyelets to form a continuous V, instructions are included on how to do this.
