Easy Elegant Moebius Scarf
By Pegg Thomas
Size 10 ½ needles
Lace weight yarn (2 ½ - 5 oz)
(1 ½ 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
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
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
A shorter scarf (around 26”) is more like a hood. (Both
short length of 26".) To have a truly seamless garment,
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
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
