Moebius Cowl

Pattern: Based on Purl Ridge Cowl from A Treasury of Magical Knitting by Cat Bordhi
Yarn: Malabrigo Twist in Teal Feather (about one skein) and Lettuce
Needles: US10 and 8
Notes: I cast on 180 stitches using the Moebius cast on from Cat's Bordhi's book. I knit ridges of 3 rounds of knit with 3 rounds of purl. I attempted to do an i-cord bind off but the i-cord looked really sloppy on the US10. I knit a round in the green on the 10s then switched to the 8s for the i-cord. The cowl is long enough to wrap twice around my neck and fit snuggly under my chin. It's super soft and really toasty warm to wear. This method of cowl knitting is so intriguing. I highly recommend it!
