Mobius

I love Mobius scarves, they are a lot of fun to knit and they stay on and keep you warm. My sister had put in a request for a couple a while back. It got cold yet again in her corner of the world and the scarves have not been delivered....oooppss!
Quick remedy, pull out a stitch dictionary, the Estonian one in this case, wind off some yarn from the Jagger Spun Zephyr favorite stash, Addy 42 inch, size 5 needles and go. Cast on multiple of stitch pattern anywhere close to 240 stitches and knit around and around and around until about 10 inches full width. Dig out yet another book (can never remember how to do it) with the picot castoff , done. Block in a not attached blocking board such as the ironing board, this so you can block one section at a time.

Here are the results:





There is another one, also in Jagger Spun Maine line. Pictures and specs to follow...after it gets out of the bath water and on the blocking board. I hope I can fit both in an International Flat rate mailing envelope.....then take them to the PO and hope for the best. Just about anything is likely to happen to stuff in the mail to Colombia.
Edited to change spelling......I am never sure of that one.

Lovely! Of course, you might want to check the spelling :)

Do you do the Zimmerman knit-flat-and twist Moebius or do you use Bordhi's out-from-the-middle version?

Cynthia: I use the Cat Bordhi caston. Once the stitches are on, you knit in the round. Mo seams.

That is so pretty! I didn't know there was something called Mobius (Moebius?)in knitting, it's very interesting. Laritza, the person who will be wearing it is very fortunate to get such a nice gift.
