Because just twisting the sts puts a full twist into it and still results in 2 actual edges - the CO and BO edge. The mobius CO makes a half twist and your knitting grows from the middle out and has only one edge. The CO is like the provsional CO shown here, except you use part of the cord instead of scrap yarn.
