English, you’ve gotta love it. Sometimes pronunciation can be tricky. You think it is one thing and it turns out to be something else.
Is it wind or wind? Wind with a short i as in a windy day or is it wind, with a long i, as in yarn winder.
I had some lovely soft white merino wool by Cascade Yarns purchased in a skein.
The first job was to wind it into a ball. A yarn winder makes a center pull ball of yarn in no time. I usually put the hank of wool around the arms of the rocking chair and wind from there.
A mobius scarf is a cowl with a twist. The knitting pattern I used is a mobius scarflet, found on Craftster. Unfortunately the pattern is no longer available. It’s knit on bamboo circular needles of 5.5 mm I’ve included the version of the pattern that I saved in case you want the exact same pattern.

Lay piece flat, then half-twist to join as a möbius strip. Stitch up the back seam. Using crochet hook, sc around edge until out of yarn (I was able to do 2 rnds). Hide loose ends.
The yarn was lovely and soft and very easy to knit with. Once you are finished you have a long scarf, which then has to be folded into the mobius.
With just a few easy steps you fold the scarf into the mobius or infinity scarf. First lay the scarf out. Fold one end up to the other end to form a V. Turn each end under so they are side by side. Stitch the two ends together.
You can use a scarf of any length you already have and turn it into a mobius scarf.
This scarf keeps my neck warm even when I’m not going out.

Are you getting ready for the cooler weather?
I don’t think I have ever seen a scarf like that!!
It is lovely!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Very pretty and a great neck warmer for inside Linda. I cannot knit or wear wool.
A lot of yarn is referred to as wool, but it isn’t actual wool. I can’t wear lambswool or angora as I’m allergic, but there are many other types of snythetic wool that I can wear.
I’ve never heard of a yarn winder. You can tell what an amateur I am. My mother did lots of crochet and never had done. – Margy
I don’t think I’ve heard of a mobius scarf but it’s a great idea and looks snug and warm too. Thank you for the pattern. I love playing with my yarn winder and making those yarn cakes, it seems ages since i used it. Have a peaceful Sunday. Xx
Thanks once again for stopping by!! I appreciate it!!
Very nice scarf!
It’s perfect for the transition to winter weather.
I have never heard of a mobius scarf but loved the way it looks so cozy. We haven’t had any cold weather yet this year, thank goodness, fall is running behind schedule. That’s fine with me, I running behind also. The only winter sewing I have done is to piece the fabric together and close up the rips in my hoop houses in the garden. It isn’t an impressive job but if it holds through the storms, I will be happy.
