PATTERN DETAILS

Lulu is a reversible moebius cowl that is deeper and narrower than most moebius scarves or cowls, so that it can be worn in one layer around the neck or up over the head like a hood. It starts with Cat Bordhi's moebius cast on and moves out from there in a reversible geometric stitch to a welted edge with an I-cord bind off. Lulu is made in a plied, lofty, Aran weight merino for softness, stitch definition, and squishable warmth. It is very quick to knit, and the stitch pattern is easy to read and memorize, making Lulu a great portable project. Both charted and written instructions are provided, as well as a link to Cat Bordhi's moebius cast on tutorial. Because of the stitch change at the end of each round, you can alternate skeins every row if using a hand dyed yarn, and the line blends with the adjacent knit column.
