Here is a great project that knits up quickly and makes a great gift, too.
This moebius scarf or wrap is a continuous one-sided surface that is formed from a rectangular piece of knitting. It is simply a loop with a half twist that will rest comfortably folded about your head or neck.
The reversible eyelet cable-look stitch pattern gives a soft contour.
Best of all, you can use different weights of yarn and make to any size without a lot of pre-planning.
Two options are given for joining: step-by-step grafting in pattern to produce an entirely invisible seam, or an easier 3-needle bind off method that would also be preferred if you use a heavily textured yarns such a boucle.
