Mobius Mitts v1
Before starting your project, please ensure you have the latest version of the pattern
The beauty of the möbius loop for knitting and crochet is that you get to work either side of the foundation chain, so that you start your work in the middle and go outwards.
People will be fascinated when you hand over your mitts and let them twist and try to work them out!
Thank you for your patience with the evolving nature of this pattern. It started as an experiment and has been improved and tailored to suggestions and troubleshooting.
4/10 (links to video tutes provided for skills required)
- single crochet
- double crochet
- increase and decrease
The crocheting is very easy, getting the initial twist correct is the tricky part. Please find a flat surface and a quiet few minutes to work through the first 3 rows of pattern. Follow the images and instructions for these rows very carefully to obtain the mirror image twists.
Please take the time to check your gauge.
Blocking is recommended: soak in warm water, gently squeeze out excess, try them on while wet to ensure you have them right side out, lay out flat and tweak shape to look best.
