A comfortably squishy cowl with a stylish twist. Begin with Cat Bordhi’s moebius cast-on and work horizontal ribs through the singular magic of a moebius.

A single eyelet round expands into more than it appears. Can you tell where this begins or ends?

Flexibility is a key element here: end the horizontal ribs when needed to stay within your skein of yarn, or keep going. Follow the link to my blog post on figuring out how much yarn you’ll need for your JSSBO so you can knit with confidence and just enjoy the pleasure of knitting a moebius.
