1 2 Easy Elegant Moebius Scarf
By Pegg Thomas

Materials Needed:
Size 10 needles
Lace weight yarn (2 - 5 oz)
(1 balls of Merino Frappe)

Using an invisible cast on, (casting onto a different colored piece of yarn) cast on 40 sts.  Work in the following pattern:

Rows 1, 2, 3) k to last 2 sts, bring yarn forward, slip last 2 sts purlwise
Row 4) k5, yo, k2tog, *k4, yo, k2tog, repeat from * until 3 sts remain, k1, bring yarn forward, slip last 2 sts purlwise
Rows 5, 6, 7) same as row 1
Row 8) k8, yo, k2tog, *k4, yo, k2tog, repeat from * until 6 sts remain, k4, bring yarn forward, slip last 1 sts purlwise

 (Note: slipping the last 2 sts of each row purlwise, then turning the work and knitting those sts in the next row, creates a very clean, even edge on garter st fabric.)

Continue to work for the desired length of the moebius scarf.  A long scarf (around 50”) can be double wrapped for greater warmth.  A shorter scarf (around 26”) is more like a hood.  (Both photos show short length of 26".)  To have a truly seamless garment, finish up by working row 8.

Carefully work a needle back into the invisible cast on sts so that the point is facing in the opposite direction as the needle you left the sts on.  (see diagram)
Remove the holding yarn.  Bring the two needle points together, laying the needles side by side (see diagram below), and weave a seamless join.  
The twist will make the scarf fold nicely under the chin.  

To make this scarf without joining into a moebius ring, work a normal cast on of only 28 sts and work pattern to desired length, then cast off.
