This is lovely - I like the stitch too - it looks like it may work up pretty quickly. I think I will give it a try. Thanks so much for the pattern :-)

Happy weekend,
Doris :-)

Is there a mistake in Row 1? Should there be a "ch 1" somewhere in the repeats?

larajeanjellybean said...

Question? Should row 1 read *sk 1,dc, ch 1* or is the pattern supposed to decrease with the first row? I've never done a mobius wrap before so I was just wondering before I start.

Larajeanjellybean,

Yes indeed my mistake - I have now amended the pattern. Thanks for letting me know my mistake :-)

Hi,
i'm a follower of your blog, i created the moibus wrap with your pattern and i'm very satisfied, i love my wrap!!
Now i can say that i understand actually the mobius strip concept, i'm a mathematician, but i didn't get the concept since i have crocheted it. Thanks for sharing!!!
And so i would ask if i could translate your pattern in italian language and write it down on my blog with all due credits.
Cheers
Kate

This is beautiful and will be the perfect addition to an outfit I'll be wearing to a high school reunion this fall! Thank you for sharing!!

Amy said...

Love Love Love the pattern! I have a question. I am an above average sized woman, could you please tell me what I can do to resize the pattern? Do I need to chain more than the original 90 sts, or just continue the rows until desired size? Thank you.

Alli said...

Thank you! This is beautiful! I am planning to make it for my mother-in-law this Christmas.
And Amy, to answer your question, you would increase the size of the original chain. Continuing the rows would make it longer, not wider.

Suzy said...

Thanks for such a great pattern. I made a smaller version to just drape around my neck. It was super quick and looks great.

Pat said...

I feel really dumb but where do your arms go?

needlekrafter said...

this is so pretty- thanks for sharing. i'm finally getting around to making it, and wondered if you could tell me what gauge yarn (number) to use- it is a fine yarn? i looked for this yarn and it's discontinued...

The Sunroom said...

Needlekrafter,
Ihave emailed you but wanted to post here that the yarn is DK weight and is still available in the UK.
Best Wishes :-)

Charlie said...

This is altogether so very lovely!! I would like to make a couple as gifts. This is simply to pretty to pass up. How would I figure to make this larger or smaller?? I have not crocheted for years and have never done Mobius before.?? What size would this one be as it is??

I appreciate any and all advice or instruction you could give to me. Thank you for sharing such a lovely pattern.

Annie said...

Is this Pattern in US or UK? Do I need to convert it? I can't wait to make it!

Shannon said...

I was a little confused on the twist. Somehow I ended up with a thick stitch going across the middle. I am going to try it again, as I was able to complete it in less than 2 hours. Thanks for the pattern
