I got fed up with the regular scarves I had because I couldn't get them to 'tie' nicely, stay round my neck and not be all lumpy under my coat so I decided to make a moebius scarf since I'd heard they stay well. This was my first cabled project, though I made it at least a year ago. I used version 1 of knitty's elbac for the stitch pattern with an extra repeat of each cable for a little more width.

I can wrap it round my neck twice and not have it too snug, or I can wrap it round my neck once, twist it and wrap it round my head to keep my ears warm, although that tends to look quite silly but to be honest, when the weather requires it nobody's going to be looking at the side of my head too closely!  Grin

^ not coiled up round the banister. It's striped like that to compliment an entrelac hat I knitted which was supposed to go with my blackwatch tartan coat... It's a bit different but I like it.

....aaand a blurry close up of the cables/ribbles to finish!

Neat idea to use reversible cables for a moebius.  I've been thinking I need to make a cowl and might take inspiration from you.  Smiley

I like the colours, too.

So much to make, so little time!
