My moebius Roam Cowl was just published in Knitscene Accessories 2012, and I couldn’t be happier with the beautiful styling and photography.
It’s knit in String Theory Caper Sock, in the lovely Oban colorway which threatens to make an orange-lover out of me. The infinity scarf is cast on at the center using Cat Bordhi’s brilliant Moebius CO, then knit outward round and round to the bound off edge. As is typical with me, I planned it to use almost every last bit of one skein, because I’m all about maximizing value per yard. Originally I called my prototype Rome Around, because it uses the reversible Roman Stripe stitch pattern, and I like wordplay. I also like the Black Tulip colorway that I first used. But surprisingly, I find myself wanting to knit something else in the warm, mellow whiskey tones of the final sample.
