The Cloudy Sky Mobius Cowl is a bulky cowl with a twist…literally! This cowl is chunky, lofty and warm, but also has the added advantage of laying perfectly flat because of the “mobius” or twist made before seaming it together.
This is the perfect project for those who like to be toasty without any unnecessary bulk. It is the perfect companion for a v-neck coat (like a pea coat) too.
Instructions are provided in two different sizes as shown above, a shorter version and a longer version. Cowl is crocheted flat, then twisted and seamed.
The stitch sequence was inspired by the Mulberry Shawl. If you like this pattern be sure to check this shawl out too!
Cloudy Sky Mobius Cowl
By Jennifer Dickerson
- 1 Skein Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick (Cowl is shown is the “Glacier” colorway)
- N (9.0 mm) crochet hook
- Tapestry Needle (for weaving in ends)
- Shorter Version: 5.5 inches wide and 28 inches long
- Longer Version: 5.5 inches wide and 38 inches long
Note: Both versions each used less than one skein of the yarn, I had about roughly 1/3 of the skein left after the short and 1/4 left after the long. If you desire a longer cowl, keep going until all of the yarn is used up or you could always use a second skein if you like for an even longer piece, like an infinity scarf for example.
Note: Stitches in this pattern are worked in the spaces (vs. the stitches). To learn more about working into the spaces, click here.
Foundation Row: dc in the 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in each ch across row.
Row 1: Ch 3 and turn, dc in first space and each space to end of row ( including the turning chain space).
Row 2: Ch 3 and turn, dc in first space, ch 2, skip one space, *dc in next space, ch 2, skip next space, rpt from * to end of row, dc in last space (made from the turning chain from the previous row)
Row 3: Ch 3 and turn, 2 dc in first space (ch 2 space from previous row), 2 dc in each ch 2 space across row, 1 dc in last space (made from the turning chain from the previous row)
Row 4: Ch 3 and turn, dc in first space and each space to end of row (including the turning chain space).
Row 5: Repeat row 4.
Repeat rows 2-5 until cowl is desired length (see sizing above for the size and look you like best), weave in any ends.
After weaving in ends, twist the piece once and seam the ends using a whip stitch.
