Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

The Mobius is such an interesting form and one of the unique shapes that knitters and crocheters can create seamlessly. The challenge, however can come at the start with the cast on. As a teacher, my goal is to try and find new, hopefully better ways to accomplish the same outcome. This design features a new method of beginning a Mobius, one I believe to be easier to execute.

In addition, this design features a reversible ripple stitch where the waves interlock into one another, Add a long repeat yarn into the mix and the colors transition symmetrically from the center out. Choose sport or worsted weight yarn, a long or short loop creating four options. The result, a beautiful work of art for your neck (or wonderful gift for a friend) that is fun to knit and even more fun to wear.
