Oatmeal Mobius Cowl

Oatmeal Mobius Cowl

This one is really easy and quick.  Only knit stitch, it is perfect for beginners or for that knitter who needs an easy project for those distracted times in our lives!  Very little thinking involved with this one!

Yarn:  Stylecraft Sirocco DK (cotton and linen blend) in oatmeal**** or any DK weight yarn preferably with some nubby texture*** I plan to knit another of these with Noro Silk Garden too, which will look quite different than my cotton one!  4 - 5 balls (200-250grams)

Needles: 4.0mm
Gauge: Approx 20 sts to 4 inches in garter stitch (knit every row)
Size: 14 inches wide and 32 inches long (before joining in a tube)

Cast on 70 stitches.  Knit every row (garter stitch) for 32 inches.  That's it!

 Lie flat on the floor.   Twist center once.
 Join the outside edges, sewing into a tube, keeping the twist in the middle.
 Wear loosely around the neck with the seam at back of neck and the twist at the front.

My daughter loves the mobius cowl. I would like to make it and was wondering how much yarn to buy.

About 200 grams will do it

How many yards is that?

chris said...

yards would be about 800, but you could make it as big as you want....

What size needles?

chris said...

as the pattern states, 4mm needles should work, or whatever achieves the correct gauge.

Where can you get the Stylecraft Sirocco yarn? I have looked everywhere on the web with no success.
Thanks very much.

Hi Lois, unfortunately this pattern was written 6 years ago, so it is unlikely that you would find the exact yarn... probably discontinues 3-4 years ago. So, I would look for any fun textured yarn that has a suggested needle size of 4mm (US 6) and substitute that. It is not terribly gauge dependant as a project, so have fun with it!
Cheers, Chris
