I used this super-easy pattern while delving into Cat Bordhi's Moebius Cast On. It's so inventive and addictive!
Here's a quick tutorial on how to cast on for the Moebius Cowl and begin knitting in the round (about 5 minutes).
Yarn: HiKoo Sueno Worsted Tonal (80% superwash Merino wool, 20% viscose from bamboo; 182 yd [166 m]/3.53 oz]): #153 Jeans Drawer, 1 skein
Needles: Size 15 US (10 mm): 47″ circular
Gauge: 3 stitches per inch when blocked
Cast on 60 (80 Size Large) stitches using the Moebius cast-on technique. Note ** If you count a stitch each time the yarn touches the needle like in the video above, double the numbers. Cast on 120 (160 Size Large).
Rounds 1-4: Knit.
Rounds 5-8: Purl.
Repeat rounds 1-8 for pattern.
When desired width is reached, bind off using the Icelandic bind-off. Block as desired.

There's nothing like a pair of handknit socks. You can use gorgeous sock yarn, choose your stitch pattern, and take them with you wherever you go. One thing I've learned over the years is how to customize socks to fit my feet, and I like a rounded toe. It's important for me because my feet are fairly straight across the toes, and a pointy toe just ends up flopping around empty.
Kelley likes a rounded toe, too, and she's developed a recipe for making them for her toe-up socks. She creates her rounded toe by spreading out the increases, separating them with a growing number of knit rounds in-between.
It's summertime, and the knitting is breezy. Here are 5 great patterns to cast on (and wear!) during the summer months.
Never stop knitting, regardless of the heat!
