This is a super-simple pattern from This Girl Loves to Craft that I’m sharing with you because the story behind it is kind of funny. Knitter Darcie lives in Argentina, where they sell yarn by weight rather than yardage, so part of her pattern for the Rolley Polie Moebius Cowl includes a picture of the yarn next to a copy ofHarry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (because everybody has a copy of that, right?) so you can judge how much yarn you’ll need.
But the truth is you can make this project any size you want because it’s just a loop of stockinette stitch (thus the name, because the edges curl). She used a thick and thin yarn, which adds some texture and interest, but certainly isn’t necessary.
She makes it a “moebius” by adding a twist in the cast on, which is not strictly a moebius (that’s actually a little more complicated) but still gives a nice twisted look.
This is a super fast project that would be great for gift knitting in a pretty, warm yarn. You could also make it shorter, longer or in a different gauge depending on the type of yarn you have available.
