Circo Cowl was Fall 2015’s Mystery KAL in my Ravelry group! Circo starts with a provisional cast on… then you begin a reversible cable pattern that is worked in one long strip. Then the strip is joined by twisting the strip once and grafting it together. Then stitches are picked up all the way around this strip creating a moebius! Then a lace pattern with beads is worked… creating the cowl.

What a fun way to make a moebius, right? Want to see more photos? There are tons here.
