New Pattern Release: Two-Tone Mobius Cowl

I just published my newest pattern, Two-Tone Mobius Cowl, over on Ravelry.com!

If TK001_MobiusCowl_2TK001_MobiusCowl_1you're thinking, "yeah, but that mobius cast-on is SO confusing and difficult" — guess what?  I've fixed that problem.  If you’ve been frustrated by the “popular” version of the mobius cast-on, try mine instead. Knit two rows, perform three simple steps (shown with photos), and you’re off and knitting!

I also have an upcoming class at Nitro Knitters on Tuesday, 7/21/2015, if you want to learn this straight from the source.

You'll need something called "ravel cord" (which I will provide in class), but any strong, smooth string that can be pulled through your stitches will do.  Slippery nylon or rayon is best, but knitters have successfully used crochet cotton, fishing line, and even dental floss as substitutes!

This pattern is so flexible, you could knit it a dozen times between now and the holidays, and never get bored.  Use any pairing of light-to-medium weight yarns that contrast in color, texture, gauge, or all three.  Since a mobius is knit from the center outwards, using a gradient yarn, or several yarn changes, creates beautiful symmetry with very little effort.

What are you waiting for?  Go get your twist on!
