I was over at Stacy's blog Golden Bird Knits and she was showing a pattern she had found that she was enjoying knitting. I thought it would be a fun knit for the Sister Suzy's friends.this Christmas. Which lead to a knitting frenzy of scarfs and cowls. Here is the first one I finished.
It is Cat Bordhi's Lacy Moebius Cowl pattern. The cowl was knit on US #10 circular needles with Red Heart Designer Sport in Cocoa and uses less than a skein of yarn. This was such a fun knit. Knitting moebius is addictive. For instructions on how to cast-on a moebius go to Cat Bordhi's you-tube video. It is so cool! One word of warning I did knit this on 60" needles and it was a pain getting the stitches to move around the cable. I also knitted two more on 32" needles and it was even more difficult, definitely use 47" needles. (Something I want for my Birthday!) The cowl knitted up for me 10" by 11" un-stretched. The bind-off is Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-off. Cat Bordhi has a you-tube video for that too!
Have a good day!
