Bearfoot Over the Shoulder is a different angle on the one-sided Möbius.

This project works up quickly on relatively large needles in a simple reversible lace pattern.

The completed strip of knitting with self-shaping angles at each end is joined with 3-needle bind off to create the “V”. Super easy, yet intriguing.

The unique shape encourages a variety of styles for wearing such as a shoulder wrap/shawl, an asymmetrical circular neck scarf or a head covering.
