Beach Peas Möbius   

by Alla Saenko
Pattern notes:

Beach Peas Möbius cowl is designed

as a part of a set with Beach Peas
Tam. A carefully selected stitch
pattern makes this accessory totally
The main part of the cowl is
worked in a long strip (like a scarf)
starting with provisional cast-on, then
the ends of the knitted piece are
joined after giving it a half twist to
make a Möbius loop and grafted
together for a seamless look. Finally,
the trim is worked in-the-round by
picking up stitches along the side
edges of the cowl.
If you are not familiar with grafting
or prefer to join the ends with
buttons, the pattern includes an
instruction to make a cowl with a
button closure instead.
This infinity cowl can be worn
draped around your shoulders or
looped around the neck twice for a
comfortable, cozy fit.

For a seamless look cowl use provisional cast-on method, for a cowl with the button closure
use any other preferable method, and cast on 21 sts.
Note:​ To alter the width of the cowl or adjust the pattern to a different gauge use the
following formula for the number of cast-on stitches: [number of stitch pattern
repeats]x4+3(for symmetry)+2(selvage)= number of cast on sts.
In this design the number of stitch pattern repeats is 4, then the total number of cast-on
sts is 4x4+3+2=21 sts.

Option I: Seamless Style
Cut the yarn leaving a tail about 4 times longer the width of the knitted piece to have
enough length of yarn to graft the ends together.

Graft cast-on stitches with the last row stitches to form the loop. To make a Möbius loop
you need to twist one end of the cowl before joining it to the other end.

Note: ​F or a finishing touch you will need to pick up stitches along the sides of the knitted
piece to make a trim. Because it’s a Möbius loop, you will be picking up stitches from one
side, then from the other before you return to the​ ​
starting point.

With circular needles pick up and knit an even number of stitches along the edges of the
cowl in a rate approximately 1 st per every 2 rows (or in other words - pick up and knit one
stitch in each elongated stitch). Place a marker to mark the beginning of the round.
In a Möbius cowl with eleven pattern repeats the total number of picked up stitched should
be 13x11x2=286 (sts).

Round 1-4: work in Garter Stitch pattern,

Round 5: * yo, p2tog; rep from * to end.
Round 6: knit all sts to end.

Bind off all stitches, cut a tail at least 4” (10cm) long to weave in later.

Weave in ends and block. Enjoy wearing your new cozy accessory!

Option II: Button Closure Style

After you’ve done all the necessary number of pattern repeats, work additional 10 rows in
Garter Stitch pattern.

Bind off all stitches. ​

Do not​ cut the yarn and ​ do not​ pull the yarn through the last bind off
stitch, but leave it live and count it as the first stitch when you start picking up stitches for
the trim. ​
T urn your knit 90 degrees to begin picking up stitches for the trim along the slipped
stitches edge. Then pick-up and knit stitches in a rate 1 st per every 2 rows (or 1 stitch in
each elongated stitch) so the total number of stitches on the needle will be odd.​ ​
[~147 sts].

Work Rows (2-7) of the main part, which go right after ​ **​ at the beginning of the pattern
instruction (page 2). Bind off, and cut-off yarn leaving a tail to weave in later.

To finish the other side of the cowl with a trim, rejoin the yarn and pick-up the same (odd)
number of stitches along this edge and work the same as for the first edge.

Sew on buttons to the Garter Stitch end of the cowl, evenly placed and aligned with the
eyelets at the opposite end of the cowl that will serve as button holes.
Weave in ends and block. Enjoy wearing your new cozy accessory!
