The Amey Cowl- T52MMMC Week 6

So here it is, possibly a little later than it should have been, but I think the wait was worth it...


The Amey Mobius Cowl.

Not only did I knit it but I spun the wool too! It's made from super soft merino in this muted grey/pale blue and I am very proud.

If you would like to make the Amey cowl like this, you will need:
  • Approx 172m of a bulky/chunky yarn
  • 1 pair of 7mm knitting needles
  • General items for casting off and construction
Gauge: 3 st, 5 rows to 1 inch in moss/seed stitch (k1, p1), although this is not too important.

Key: k=knit, p=purl, st=stitch/stitches

To Begin:
  • Cast on 37 stitches
  • For Every row work moss stitch (k1,p1) beginning by slipping the first stitch, moving the yarn to the front (between the needles) and then purling the next stitch.
  • Work until you have about 3 metres of yarn left.
  • Next row cast off, weave in ends.
To construct:
  • Lay the length in front of you with the long sides top and bottom. At this point you can either simply stitch the two ends together to make a tube or complete the following...
  • Take the top left corner to the bottom right corner and then the bottom left to top right.
  • Stitch/crochet the seam. Personally I prefer to crochet the seam as I think it gives a neater finish but this is personal preference.
I hope you enjoy my pattern, any problems please just get in contact!

Happy knitting, x

Lovely!! And to think you spun the wool too? I love that :-) Also LOVE your banner, it's great. Knitting is on my list of things to learn I wish I had paid more attention to my grandma!

I love moss stitch and this looks fantastic - and although I have so little time for knitting this one is really tempting me, perhaps over my Christmas holiday! Thanks for sharing the pattern - I have a mathematical friend and seem to remember her telling me about a mobius strip -in fact I think she knitted a small one as an ornament years and years ago - it just has one side is that right?! xx

The mobius strip...I knit it and still don't really understand it, my dad told me how to stitch it together and I thought it looked nice so, there you have it! It is something like that though! Thanks for the love everyone. Happy Knitting xx
