Moebius Scarf - Crocheted
This scarf was inspired by similar patterns on the web as well as a life
long love of math and science.
My first Moebius Scarf pattern, Moebius Scarf - The Original, is a knitted version, and is my most popular knitting pattern. This crocheted version is most like my knitted Moebius Scarf 3. It's worked up flat, then sewn together afterwards into a Moebius strip.
- Approx. 300 - 400 g worsted yarn (10 1/2 to 14 oz) in however many colours you want, preferably wool or wool blend for warmth (like
- Hook in size suitable for your yarn
- Gauge doesn't really matter as long as it looks good to you
- Choose a stitch pattern. It should be reversible, ideally one that looks the same on both sides. Avoid patterns that tend to curl at the edges when worked flat.
- Chain your desired number of stitches (40 or so works well in worsted for an adult scarf). Note: If using more than one colour, you can change colours across each row, or every few rows, whichever you prefer. Just make sure your colour changes are well hidden - this scarf is basically reversible.
- Work until the length of your fabric is approximately twice the length needed to fit over the wearer's head. Break yarn and end off.
- Lay your strip of fabric horizontally in front of you. You'll be folding this strip in half and twisting it. Bring the upper left corner of the fabric over and down to meet the lower right corner of your knitting , then, still holding this in place, flip up the (former) lower left corner to meet the upper right. Sew them together along their short edges as insivibly as possible. This creates the half twist, identifying it as a Moebius strip.
- That's it! No ends to fringe, etc.
- First admire your work, then be sure to show it off! :)
- This scarf is a loop with a half twist, which will rest against your neckline to keep you warm. It can also be doubled and tugged up over your head to keep your ears warm in colder weather.
- You could always try a different yarn weight if you like, just make sure you have enough and adjust the number of stitches accordingly.
