Pitsi-Möbius is a seamless moebius shawl, knitted in one piece, with the cast on in the middle. It is a loose and fluffy garment to warm your shoulders, or you can wrap it around your neck. Pitsi is dropped stitches and garter stitch. The border of the shawl resembles the stitch called “seafoam”.

Moebius is a circle with a half-twist in it. The trick is that it only has one surface, like a continuous Möbius strap.

You will need a special cast on method for moebius. Video tutorial by Cat Bordhi: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVnTda7F2V4

Long circular needle (100-120 cm / 40”-47”) is needed.
