I saw an instructional video on You Tube about casting on and working a mobius piece. I followed along on the instructions for getting the piece to twist so that it knits up as a mobius and though the video was rather involved I thought I understood how it should be done.
Then I saw the video on Knitting Daily TV that showed how to twist the first row to get the mobius effect. All the gal did was just twist the beginning of the first round around the needle before joining to work in the round.
It was exactly the thing we're warned against when knitting in the round - make sure not to twist your stitches when joining the ends! In this case you DO twist the stitches. It seemed SO SIMPLE! Can it be that easy? Here's one set of instructions that goes into elaborate detail on how to create the mobius effect and another set that just twists the already-cast-on stitches once around the needle and then joins.
I know which one I'd vote for but if anyone has any experience with this I'd appreciate hearing from you.
Thanks so much!!!
