Cyn gave me some yarn that she had stored away from her previous adventures in crochet. After untangling it and thankful for her recent purchase, I decided to create something for her. Recently, I had been trying to develop a pattern for a crochet moebius and this presented the perfect opportunity. Originally, I had started making Thank You Cowl by Julie Blagojevich, double stranding for extra thickness, but the fabric was turning out too dense. Next I tried knitting and developed a softer fabric, but I did not want to knit, having just finished knitting Summertime Blues. So I went back to hooking more loosely with a double strand, but I was really not liking the pattern.
After frogging – which is not as easy as it sounds when it comes to double strands – I set to creating a crochet moebius cowl. I have written the pattern up or you may download the pattern from my Crochet Patterns Page.
