Nah ... I think maybe it's OK, after all. My problem in viewing it properly is that the faintly fancy stitch (and I emphasise the adverb) makes it hard to look on it like, say, the example I attach ...
The basic look of a moebius - or, more correctly, möbius - is as per the other thinggy I've attached: and now that I regard that more closely, I think perhaps my scarf IS wrong.
I may have to slash my wrists if I can't make up my mind.

I say wrap the durn thing around your neck and don't worry about whether it's "right" or "wrong" (whatever that means). It's loverly and once you've got it on, no one will be the wiser as to whether it's got two twists or one!

But that's just me. If you really REALLY must drive yourself crazy, well, have at it, I guess!

Yer right! - there's no 'right'!
And also right about how it looks when wrapped around the neck: not a soul in the world could tell if there were sixteen twists. (I could, of course: I would be choking. Much as several people wish would happen, quite frequently.)
I shall proceed with another and superior pattern, provided the bloody site stops telling me that my attempt to buy it with PayPal don't work ...

I finally looked at how to cast on for a moebius. I'm looking at free patterns on Ravelry. I may check www.knittingatplay.com too. I think I'll try a headband first. This could be a flavor of knitting that I will have to indulge in often. Seeing it twist automagically is just fascinating.

GG, there are several different methods for CO with a moebius: you should look at them all before deciding. Or, of course, you could simply try whichever one you find first and see if it's OK or if it drives you bonkers.
The one I ended up with, having tried at least three others, was the one for the completed scarf I posted the pic. of; and also, to my great luck, for the next pattern I'm going to do - which is the link I posted when referring to a superior pattern. Total coincidence: one creator is an Aussie and one a yank, and they know nothing of each other. As well, these are the only two moebius patterns I've found, in about a thousand years of trawling the Web, that use this particular CO.
Me lucky day! :-)

I found 4 cast ons for doing a Moebius. Is the one you used top secret and available only to those who purchase the pattern? Can't you use whichever cast on you prefer?

In other words, there ain't no "can't" about it, me old china. Up to you.

But yes, you're right: both the pattern I've done and the one I'm now working on are paid for, and thus their common CO methodology is ... ahh ... classified.
<grin>

Classified cast ons.
Best joke I've heard in a long time.
Thanks, I needed that.

I love the moebius made out of scrap yarn. It's a gorgeous combination of colors. Good eye (groan). Looking forward to the next one too.

Marg1e -nice to see another Aussie here, and a Sydneysider too, bonus! Love the mœbius idea, though it does my head in a bit.
