Disclaimer: This is an old pattern published in 2008. It has not been updated since then and does not reflect my current style of pattern writing.

This scarf is inspired by the neck warmer of motorcyclists.

Worsted weight (shown here: Noro Aurora color #02, 1.5 skeins)

Finished size: 46 cm along the center of the scarf (the “circumference”), height: 23 cm
Needles: 3.75 mm circular needles at least 80 cm long

Tubular Set-up

Use the Tubular Method to cast on 256 stitches. Make 2 full twists before joining in the round.

Round 1: [Knit 1, slip 1 purlwise] around.

Round 2: Knit 1, purl 1, [slip 1 purlwise, purl 1] around.

Repeat these 2 rounds once more.

Main Section

Continue in 1×1 ribbing until piece measures half of the desired height (34 rounds worked in the sample. Note: After several rounds, the waste yarn can be removed.

Place all the stitches on a waste yarn. Practice with Paper PrototypeMake a moebius ring with a paper stripe. Cut it in half along the center of the stripe, it will look like the piece of your knitting.Now reverse the motion and graft the live stitches along the center and you will get a moebius ring.

Finishing
