The Checkers cowl is a pattern by Katya Frankel from Head to Toe: Kids' Knit Accessories. A moebius strip is a ribbon with half a twist added to it and ends connected into a loop in such a way that the resulting band has only one continuous surface and one edge. This property of a moebius strip lends itself beautifully to knitting in the round. Basic instructions on moebius cast on are included.
