Hi! I twisted my stitches per the video and have knitted it halfway but there is NO twist! Any suggestions on how I happened to lose my twist along the way? How do you keep them twisted? Thanks!

A Möbius has a half-twist, where this pattern has a full twist.


Now, that's not to say that it's not a beautiful pattern!  It IS a beautiful pattern and I like it a lot and have downloaded it and will probably knit it well.  It actually looks rather pleasing to make and I'm looking forward to casting on.  I've never knit anything in the round where you join, being careful TO twist.  So, this should be interesting.


...but point is, it's not a Möbius.  A Möbius requires a half-twist and the double-'round-the-very-long-circular-needle technique, knitting from the inside out.

I just followed a method from an original moebius pattern.  After you cast on your stitches you start knitting in the bottom on the cast on stitches without getting rid of the top stitich.  you end up with adouble loop and a twist at the connection and then just keep going round and round now on double the stitches.  I am practicing on some yarn and will be binding off after a few more rounds.  I did do the pattern from the white one so it will be interesting if this works.  It was easier for me then using Cat's method for that wrapping the stitches and you get the same result, instead of say 80 stitches you are knitting in 160 in the round.

I reread all of the comments and now all I still need is do you twist the stitchesonjust half the cable part or  what??? and then how do you keep it twisted???  I have done many products using a circular needle but this is just confusing the life out of me!!  Also I can't find that episode to relook at it.  I have Cat' video, bookmarked but that seems socomplicated and if only a half twist is needed I would rather do that!!!

I am still at a  loss with these videos!!  The pattern calls for a  24in circular needle and  Cat's video and directions call for a 47in circular.  also I really don't understand the half twist.  do you do it before you connect the round and then just turn half the stitchesbefore you start the pattern.   How do you actually keep it twisted??  I have the Tahki yarn which is lovely but before I start I really need a few directions.  Also the Cat's cast on is not at all how I did cast on my practice stitches following the first video  Any help would be appreciated!!!   sorry about those other two blank comments!!

I really liked the gray example on the mannequin in this episode.  Anyone know if there's a pattern for it out there anywhere?  It has a basketweave stitch and is wider, more of a capelet than a scarf.

Here is the lady that invented the Moebius Knitting technique showing how to do it

I wouldn't call this lace.  Fishnet maybe.

This is truly a mobius scarf. If you do a search on mobius, you can do a mobius on paper, and see how it really works. It really is a half twist when you connect the first row. You half twist it and then that first row turns out to be the center row of the entire scarf. It's really clever how it works. Usually when you connect a scarf, you need to make sure that you DON'T do the twist or half-twist, but in this case, you really need to make sure that you do the half-twist in order to make it turn out right.

I saw a Mobius scarf (designed by Cat Borhdi) done on Knitty Gritty and sat right down and knitted one.

In fact, I have already done two mobius scarves using this pattern:

It turns out amazing and so soft although I did not use Cashmere.  I used Simply Soft. 

If you want to do an amazingly unique scarf, make a mobius scarf. I'm going to try this pattern, as it looks easy and I can probably do it in a short period of time.

Are the negative comments because this is a psuedo moebius?  It's a losing battle.  Too many people are referring to scarves with half twists as moebius scarves.  It looks like an interesting knit and I'm going to give it a try.  You can always start it as a real moebius and skip the half twist.

to Lesterxyz:  Look at the pattern directions on the lower right hand corner of the first page...basically all rows are the same.


to Mooch:  The twist would be what you've learned NOT to do when doing the first row of knitting in the round.  Purposely twist the cast-on stitches ONCE before knitting the FIRST round.  All other rounds are knit as usual.


Happy knitting!  I'm not letting myself start another project till I finish two of my many going, but that doesn't keep me from collecting patterns.

How do you make the twist ..... and, is it done on every row or just the fist one??

Judy & Jepp98 are correct - This IS DEFINATELY a mobius.  There IS a twist in the pattern in the first line of the directions.

I agree with Katherine6;

"It's a lovely stitch, a pretty yarn, and a charming effect around the neck - BUT IT"S NOT a Moebius!!!

You really need to give it another name which would do it justice.   Dimar3

The first line of the pattern for the scarf includes the instruction to TWIST. You must read and follow the pattern instructions correctly for the scarf to be moebius.

KatherineP is correct- it is not a moebius...there is no "half- twist" in the pattern!  Was it mistakenly omitted?

I would like to make the hat but I am unsure how to knit the wrong side rows of the faggotting pattern before shaping the top.

It's a lovely stitch, a pretty yarn, and a charming effect around the neck - BUT IT"S NOT a Moebius!!!
