Happy weekend to all! I had a heavy week so what could be more relaxing than crocheting a new project on a Saturday? I declared this day as a real rest day for me. No marketing, no cooking (except for a very light brunch --- Tuna Chow Fan side dished with cucumber-tomato mix and left-over chicken nuggets) but how could I say no to crochet? It will always be a perfect relaxation for me! And so, in between sleep periods throughout the day, I found myself working on a cowl.
I used a combination of two patterns. One pattern was the Unisex Cowl - Neckie Crochet from The Sunroom,
|The Unisex Cowl - Neckie Crochet|
I started working using the Mobius Infinity Cowl pattern by Michael Sellick, from Step 1 until after the first part of Step 3, where the direction to start a mobius says, "Turn the work so it has a permanent 180- degree twist." Then, instead of making DCs all the way back to the beginning chain, I shifted pattern to follow the "DC, chain 1, DC" from the Unisex Cowl - Neckie Crochet from The Sunroom.
Using this whole ball of Red Heart Yarn, I started the work with the twist made at Round 2. Do you notice that in the upper portion of the photo on the right?
Look what I got at the end of the day.
See the inverted band on the lower portion of the cowl, resulting from the 180-degree twist made after Round 1. This was my first time to make a mobius. My husband who is a mathematician explained it to me in mathematical language which I didn't quite understand. Suffice it to say that for a layman, a mobius is simply a loop with a single twist. A mathematical phenomenon, it is... for a child, it can be magic, for others it can be a riddle, an art, but for crafters, it can be a scarf, a cowl, a lace wrap. How about you? Have you tried any project using a mobius? What project have you made using a mobius design?
Have a great week ahead! :)
