This one-skein aran cowl starts with a moebius cast on and finishes with a knit on Shetland “Doris” pattern edging. And it is all much simpler than it sounds. This is fun knit that incorporates some interesting techniques.

The Moebius Cast-On
You can find a video of the Moebis cast-on by Cat Bordhi at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVnT- da7F2V4 and blog tutorials by me at http://knitproblog.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/moebius-knitting.html and http://bromiskelly.typepad.com/lapurplepenguin/2013/12/moebius-cast-on-tutorial.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.
