New FREE Knitting Pattern - Bulky Mobius Cowl!

We've written up the free knitting pattern for one of our latest store samples, the Bulky Mobius Cowl in Malabrigo Rasta!



Free pattern by Haley Waxberg

The pattern is very simple, fast, and satisfying for time when you just need to produce something FAST. It is knit in the round using a really long circular needle and a nifty little cast on just for mobius knitting. To learn this easy new skill you can watch Cat Bohrdi’s great Intro to Mobius Knitting tutorial on you tube. Cat’s instructions are clear and easy to follow and you’ll be an expert in no time!

How many do I cast on?

Hi - I have the same question. How many stitches are cast on for the S/M? Thanks ! :-)

Hi - I added a comment a bit ago about how many stitches to cast on. I found the answer... the free pattern on your site for the project. Thank you! I haven't knit in years and have watched Cat's tutorial and am confident I can do this. I have some yarn that is bulky and from my dad's sheep (he's not longer living), so it will be extra special to wear. Thanks for making the project available. :)

Thanks Haley! Do you have a direct link for your Quick Button Capelet? I'd like to try that as my second project, but the link (on your site under patterns) brings up "Entry Level Capelet" instead. Thank you again!
