First Mobius !!


This has been the strangest project yet. I was in Berkeley visiting daughter & went to the new knitting shop on Solano, saw the strangest scarf I'd ever seen. HAD to make it.

It is a mobius scarf, no beginning, no middle & yes, one does cast off! (notice twist! happens all by itself ... well, ok, it was totally weird, but I did not graft the ends!)

Hi,
These are the web sites I used to figure out the mobius. It was really wild & I plan on doing another!

Best of luck!
Carol

Cat Bordhi is very well known for her mobious knitting. I've made several, I love her style.

This is intriguing -- I have to make one just to see how it's done! I love yours, but I'm having trouble envisioning how it's worn. I'm thinking it's a short scarf, almost a cowl -- is that right? Thanks for the links.
