Möbius, Take 2

I finally started something! 

I had some time last week to go through some ideas I had for various projects and "organize" them. I took the instructions for the Astro Cluster Stitch Pattern and I sketched it out. Then I was ready to cast on. (What's the proper term for this in crochet? Cast on feels so knit.) 

I had to rip out my first try as I couldn't get the stitch pattern to mirror over the first round. I did some more sketching, and I figured out what I needed to do to get it to work. And it did.

So a win, for now. 

We'll see. I mean, I've already begun something with this yarn and ripped it out

It's still got a couple rounds to go before I can be sure if it's going to look good. 

But right now I don't hate it. And it's easy enough that I don't have to think too much while watching TV. So, it's good for now.

  1. Cool looking pattern. It almost looks like figure eights, so it really adds to the Mobius effect.

    1. It's kind of freeing, actually. It doesn't have to be the one. I can always unravel.

  7. Looks interesting, so far. BTW: casting on. I think the only crochet I know where cast on is used as a term is Tunisian crochet (the crochet where you use one very long crochet hook). I like patterns that create calm when working - what I call "chewing gum for the mind".

    1. Yeah, it usually starts with "chain # of stitches" kind of thing.

  8. Oooh, that’s pretty. How it is now, I can imagine pearls integrated in it and worn as as a necklace.
