Originally published in Knitscene magazine, the individual pdf download of Roam available from my Ravelry store is formatted in my usual layout, updated and expanded from the magazine version, and includes new photography, both written and charted instructions, and a link to the moebius CO tutorial.

Roam around in this luxury moebius cowl, featuring the reversible Roman Stripe lace stitch pattern. Using a moebius cast on, this infinity scarf is knit outward from the cast on edge, which becomes the middle of the cowl, until the outside edge is reached and bound off. Long rounds are balanced by a simple 7 row repeat that looks beautiful from both sides and lends itself to the infinity structure.

Techniques & Skills Used: moebius CO, knit/purl, knitting in the round, easy lace; the lace stitch pattern is both written and charted.

Size: 46” circumference and 10” tall.

Yarn: String Theory Hand Dyed Yarn & Fiber Caper Sock (80% Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon; 400 yards/366m/113g), sample shown in Oban; 1 skein, or 400 yards of fingering weight yarn.

Other Materials: US 6 (4mm) 40” circular needle or size to match gauge; Stitch marker (1); Yarn needle.

Gauge: 14 st and 35 rows/4” in Roman Stripe stitch pattern. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished cowl, and different yardage requirements.
