A bulky yarn that is almost twice as thick as worsted weight. I used Lion Brand Homespun in Covered Bridge Red
Size K/10 or 6.5mm aluminum crochet hook
Yarn needle for weaving in ends
Gauge: 4" by 4" = 10sc x 10R
Finished Size: One size fits most adult women
Skill Level: Beginner
Special Stitch: Vst dc, ch1, dc in stitch indicated. When it says to Vst in vst, this means to work a dc, ch1, dc in the ch1 space of the previous row's vst.
ROW 1: Ch28. Dc, ch1, dc in 5th ch from hook. Sk 2 chs, dc, ch1, dc in next ch 7 times. Sk next ch. Dc in last ch. Ch3, turn.
ROW 2-36: Vst in each vst across. Dc in top of ch3. Ch3, turn.
To turn this into a Moebius scarf, you are going to join the first row to the last row in such a way as to sort of hide your seam. You will be joining each vst to the base of the first row's vst with a slip stitch.
You already have your ch3 which you made at the end of row 36. Lay the scarf in front of you so the first ch of the starting chain is in the upper left corner. Your chain 3 of row 36 should be at the lower right corner.
Now to form this into a Moebius scarf, twist the scarf a half turn so your ch3 is at the upper right corner. Fold the scarf in half so this upper right corner meets the upper left corner and pick it up so this corner is on your right. Join the ch3 to the upper left corner with a slip stitch and work the following across to the other corner.
*Dc in next vst of row 36. Slst in base of next vst of row 1. Dc in same vst of row 36 as last dc. Rep from * across to the other end, ending with a dc in top of ch3, then join with a slip stitch to the corner stitch of row 1. Fasten off and weave ends into work. Wear with this seam on the back of your neck.
