You are not going to believe what I did

and I have no idea how I did it, but I did it, and I don’t exactly how to fix it. I , on my circulars, while re-starting a hat for like the 3000th time, created a mobius strip. I was knitting and noticed it, marked my place, took out the needles, and there it was. How the heck did I do that? How? I am not even good at math, much less advanced stuff like that.


I’ve done that. :teehee:

I think it happens when you join your round “upside down.”

Of course you didn’t do it intentionally… You twisted the cast on when you joined for the first row.


yup…that would be why they say to be careful not to twist your stitches before you join your round. i did it once with 300+ stitches on a 24 inch needle…i didn’t notice it until i had decreased enough that it actually fit properly around the needle! :wall: and there is nothing you can do but go with it and make a mobeus something, or frog and try again. :wall:

Hey, when in Rome, you know? :shrug:

We are in Rome, right?

Well I used to live one exit down on the freeway from the Coliseum.

Granted there were no Christians getting thrown to the lions, but there were plenty of Raiders…

You mean to tell me that I’ve been putting off knitting a mobius scarf, and all I needed to do was make sure my cast-on stitches are twisted before joining? :wall:


Not exactly; a true mobius won’t have two edges, just one. There are a couple of casting on methods that have you work outwards on both sides of the caston which is the middle. The BO is the only edge.
