How to knit a seamless Moebius Cowl

£25.00

This workshop will teach you to how to do the intriguing and fun MOEBIUS cast on, a technique ingeniously ‘unvented’ by Cat Bordhi.

ThMöbius strip or Möbius band is a surface with only one side and only one edge. It can be made using a strip of paper by gluing the two ends together with a half-twist. The twisting is possible in two directions; so there are two different (mirror-image) Möbius strips.

The Mobius strip is known for its unusual properties. A bug crawling along the centre line of the loop would go around twice before coming back to its starting point. Cutting along the centre line of the loop creates one longer band, not two. Cutting one third of the way in from the edge (and parallel to it) produces another amusing result.
The Möbius strip was discovered independently by the German Mathematicians August Ferdinand Mobius and Johann Benedict Listing in 1858       from Wikipedia

Mathematics as ART!  This Mobius strip is what we will be knitting and you don't need to be good at maths to be successful!

In the end, you'll have a beautiful, seamless cowl you'll be proud to wear or give as a gift. We'll be using a chunky weight yarn that you will select when you arrive and a 100 cm  5.5 or 6.0 mm circular needle. Because you won't finish the project on the day, we can provide the needles at an additional cost or you're welcome to bring one from home. 

This workshop is led by Terri Bate.
