Dropped Stitch Moebius Cowl

Dropped Stitch Moebius Cowl

1 ball Noro Keuryon (or whatever yarn you might want to use)
1 set 6mm straight needles

Cast on 30 stitches, using provisional cast on.
Row 1 & 2: Knit (garter stitch)
Row 3: *K1, YO twice*, repeat ending with K1
Row 4: *K1, drop the 2 Yarn overs*, repeat ending with K1
Row 5, 6, 7: Knit (garter stitch)Repeat Rows 3 - 7 until you reached the length you want.

For the last set, knit only 2 rows of garter stitch. This will match up with the first two rows when you join the ends together. Every so often, as you're knitting, give your work a gentle pull to straighten out the rows.

To Finish:

Give your scarf a half-twist so the opposite ends meet. Put the stitches on the provisional cast-on onto a needle and graft together. If you use the Kitchener stitch, the finished piece will look seamless.1 Ball was perfect for a short cowl that just fit my neck. You can make it longer and cast on more stitches for a shawl. Just leave enough yarn at the end for grafting. I usually allow for ~1"per stitch.

Much thanks to Elizabeth Zimmerman who is truly a Goddess of Knitting!
