Inspired by the magic tricks of Loki in Norse legends and the modern stories they inspire, this unisex cowl has its own bit of magic. It is a true moebius with no join and reversible cables, so whatever way you twist it, the surface is the same.
The cowl uses the amazing moebius cast-on technique which can seem strange at first but proves an oddly addictive knitting option. The moebius twist makes the cowl sit beautiful round your neck. The technique also means that the cables grow towards both edges of the cowl.

The Moebius Cast-on
You can find a video of the Moebius cast on by Cat Bordhi at https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=LVnTda7F2V4 and photo tutorials by me at http://knitproblog.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/moebius-knitting.html and http://www.lapurplepenguin.com/tutorials.html
I recommend practising the moebius cast on and a few rounds of knitting to get the feel of the technique before embarking on a pattern for the first time.
