Linen Stitch Mobius Cowl
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot
This fashionable cowl works up quickly with just 1 ball of Willow Yarns Dappled. It is crocheted using the linen stitch in the round with a mobius join; this puts the starting chain through the center of the cowl, and makes each round add stitches to both the top and the bottom of the cowl. It is fun to make, and the stitch and yarn work wonderfully together to create beautiful texture and color changes. The cowl also works up quickly because it is made holding 2 strands of yarn together as one, so the gauge is a bit larger.
4.5″ tall and 22″ around
Willow Yarns, dappled 1 ball in canyons #0002
US I/9/5.5 mm
16 sts in 4″ of linen stitch holding 2 strands of yarn as one
Hold 2 strands together as 1 throughout pattern. This can be done with 1 ball by pulling out both ends (one from the center and one from the outside of the ball) and holding them together as one.
Round 1: Ch 97, sc in 4th ch from hook, (ch 1, skip 1, sc in next ch) to end of starting chain, fold the strip into a loop, placing ends next to each other and being careful not to twist, flip the end without the hook down, creating a half twist (see photos), ch 1, sc in ch sp, (ch 1, sc in next ch sp) around to beginning of round,ch 1, sl st to bottom of fist sc made to join round. Your cowl will appear to have 2 rounds done at this point and will have a half twist in it.
The top two images below show the ends lined up, and then after the flip, the bottom two show the join after the flip and then after the completion of round 1.
Round 2: (Sc in next ch sp, ch 1) around, sl st to top of first sc of round to join. This will appear to add 2 rounds to your cowl.
Repeat round 2: Until there is not enough yarn to complete another full round or to desired size.
Clip yarn and weave in ends.
