Broken stripes moebius & scarf

Broken Stripes Moebius

This is a pattern for a slip stitch striped moebius cowl. Also part of the pattern is another to create the stitch pattern in a regular scarf. There is a great tutorial for the moebius cast on by Cat Bordhi on you tube. Knitting a moebius is really fascinating!

To create this cowl you will need size US 9, 60 inch circular knitting needles and a stitch marker. the cowl is knit mostly in stockinette with a just a few purl stitches. I used worsted weight acrylic yarn.

This is my new pattern I'm offering up. It's qute a unique one and I pulled the stitch out of the book Reversible Knitting: 50 brand-new, groundbreaking stitch patterns .

I worked up a smaller piece so that i would have an image of a finished object for the pattern but I intend to make this into a scarf.

This is a rows within rows pattern, it is worked in one piece without breaking or joining the yarn. Even though the body of the fabric only requires 2 rows, each of those rows have smaller rows within them as you work across completing one point at a time. It is fun and gives you a mini sense of completion with each point you finish!

This does require a lot of turning so may not be for everyone (but what pattern is?)

I am working mine on size 4 needles using sock/lace weight wool yarn. But this can be worked in any size yarn, just use the needles recommended for your yarn.

I accidentally took the photo upside down for this image (and used the same image on the pattern page). I've fixed it here but it's still upside down on the PDF
