Quick Knit: Moebius Cowl

I’m a member of a group on Ravelry that challenges each other to try new one-skein projects each month. One of the new things we are trying is moebius knitting. See the mathematical definition of moebius. You probably played with paper models of these at some point in school. If not—get out some paper, scissors and tape and have some fun with math!

I used some unknown soft acrylic yarn I have had for ages to try out knitting a moebius shape. Here is the resulting cowl modeled beautifully by my friend Linda.

And laid out flat. It’s hard to tell but there is no wrong side since a moebius strip has only one side.

    Hm. No wrong side? That alone is a supercool reason to make a moebius! I was thinking about doing it just to learn the funky cast-on, but now there’s another motivating factor.
