Mobius How To...add a fun twist to any scarf or cowl

 The other day I shared the Cloudy Sky Mobius Cowl pattern:

Click here for the Cloudy Sky Mobius Cowl pattern!

Here is a more detailed photo tutorial on making the twist, or mobius part of the pattern, I thought it would be good to add a little more directions and how-to photos in case you needed them.  This is also a great tutorial for transforming any scarf you already have into a mobius too!

To start, all you'll need is the scarf, a tapestry or yarn needle, and scrap yarn of the same color as you used in your project:

Begin by unrolling the scarf so that is flat,

Now you'll want to put a half twist in it as shown,

Here is how it looks looks like a big "V"

Now fold the sides in as shown.  See where the needle is pointing in the picture below?  That is where we'll stitch it up.

Thread a tapestry needle with the same yarn used to make the scarf,

Now whip stitch it up so it will lay nice and flat.

All finished!  Easy as pie, and makes a lovely cold weather accessory.

  3. Love this tutorial Jennifer - have just put a mobius twist in a length of trebles and half trebles and made a fab cowl that sits flat!
    Thank you so much for all the inspiration on your blog - is packed with great ideas!

  4. This is going to sound odd but I made one to fit my daughters old dog he freezes. I made it long enough to wrap around once to cover ears and neck. He loved it.

  5. Thank you Jennifer for this tutorial. I was going crazy trying to figure out how to make my cowl lay flat. I love your tutorials. I watched the video you made to teach showing how to arm knit and made that scarf. You are a wonderful teacher
