Moebius Experiment

I'm coming up on the anniversary of starting the purple infinity scarf. Christmas is less than two months away. And, of course, my Etsy shop can always use new stock.

But am I working on any of that? Of course not. Nope. I just started a new project... for me.

Using birthday yarn (yarn gifted to me for my birthday back in July), I started a very simple infinity scarf...


The yarn is lace weight (read: very thin and fine), so of course this doesn't look like anything yet. If I have enough yarn to make this wide enough, it'll be a perfect scarf for SoCal "winter".

You can't tell from this picture, but this is a moebius. I saw on a TV show how easy it is to do moebius in crochet, and I had to try it.

I'll update when this looks like something more interesting. Although, hopefully now that I've got the cast on out of my system (that's the trick), I can get back to things I should be working on, like a custom order I just received.

In case you're curious (and I know some of you are crocheters or knitters), getting a moebius started is very simple. (This isn't the TV show I saw as unfortunately that's behind a paywall, but the technique is clearly illustrated.)

  1. That is so cool looking! How many hours do you think it will take you to make one?

  3. I love your new project! That will be so adorable. I am good at starting projects and if I take that much time, I usually end up giving thoughts of finishing it up. Means I am bored with it and not happy about what it is taking to make or how it is looking.

    1. It'll be finished. Eventually. It just might take a while.

  4. I am impressed. Moebiuses make me dizzy to even think about.

    1. They make a whole lot more sense when you crochet one.

  5. That looks really cool. I might have to think about crocheting one myself.

  7. That does look cool and I can't wait to see yours. I just finished up a bunch of hats and I should be working on an afghan and some other things but nope I too decided to start a totally different crochet project for nobody in particular. Sometimes I just make stuff and tuck it away. I just finished a cross stitch and my eyes and my mind need a break! - Keep posting pics.

    1. I'm not the only one that does this? Well, I'm not surprised. We all like the shiny new as opposed to the thing we're supposed to do.

  8. That name sounds like an evil doctor's name and I think it was used on Star trek or something like that. I like how it will turn out

    1. I think it is actually named for someone.

    1. Thanks. I'm totally winging it, so we'll see if it turns out.

  10. I'm trying to get a blanket finished (not too successfully) so of course I had to check this out. I didn't know her trick about keeping a chain straight in order to make a circle, and the foundation of the moebius seemed very easy. Even my husband seemed interested. I think you have a winner here...will love to see how it turns out.

    1. That trick to keep the chain straight made the eyes pop out of my head. I'd never heard that before, and now it's been added to my bag of tricks.
