Moebius Knitting Adventure

Moebius knitting is a wondrously fascinating endeavour – you knit around and around but complete a beautiful loop scarf with a half twist in the construction. This half-twist provides the opportunity for some rather elegant fashion opportunities — how many ways can you wear this scarf / shawl/ cowl/ double-wrap neck warmer…!

My adventure started with Cat Bodhi’s “A Treasury of Magical Knitting” and then I found her YouTube video of this magical cast-on. One 48″ [122cm] circular needle later and I was on my way!

As I was creating the Woodland Grace Moebius Scarf (to be published at the beginning of March 2010), I chronicled my cast-on steps and there under the Techniques, Tips and Tutorials tab of this blog.

  1. All right, Flo! Nothing to be scared of here 🙂

    My biggest oops was casting on twice as many stitches as I needed to first time I tried — after knitting 520 stitches instead of the 260 I really hated to rip it out, but out it came — I’m not sure what I would have done with a 6 foot Moebius scarf! lol

  2. You would have followed Mary Kate and/or Ashley Olsen – I think they had 6′ long moebius scarves a couple of years ago. Then again, they didn’t have to knit them themselves!
