Moebius Cowl

Moebius cowl

This is an easy project, but incorporates an interesting technique – it is a true Moebius  using the Moebius cast on  If you are not familiar with this cast on, click here to view Cat Bordhi – Intro To Moebius Knitting.

Materials:
1 Skeins Bulky Yarn – Baby Alpaca Grande, Noro Nadeshiko, or Misti                              Alpaca Chunky.
Needle – US #13, 47 inch cable.
One stitch marker and darning needle.

You’ve reviewed the tutorial and are ready to get started.  Cast on 120 stitches using the Moebius cast on, place marker (this will mark the beginning of the round).

Pattern Stitch:

Rows 1-2:    *K4, P4* (**Repeat for all rounds).
Rows 3-4:      K6, P4, *K4,P4* (**Repeat for all rounds).
Rows 5-6:      P4, K4, P4, *K4, P4* (**Repeat for all rounds).
Rows 7-8:      P6, K4, P4, *K4, P4* (** Repeat for all rounds).

Repeat this pattern until you have 8 yards remaining.  Bind off  loosely (I love the Icelandic Bind Off)

You may use two skeins to make a wider cowl.

The Lola Sweater by Tante Sophie avait un chien/Ina Braun

 

Lola Sweater

The Lola Sweater

I received an email from a friend about this sweater.  It was listed in the top ten favs on Ravelry.  I love the lines and relaxed/unconstructed look of it.  I think it will be a perfect match for some of our hand dyed tonal yarns.  I think the pattern calls for a lace weight, but I will be using our Merino Bamboo for mine which is a light fingering.

The Lola pattern will be released on July 1, 2014 for $10.00; however, if you purchase before that date, you will receive a discount (price of pattern will increase $1 per day until it is released).

The Fibre Studio will offer a KAL for “Lola” during July and August.  Check our calendar for dates.
