I admit I haven't done a lot of moebius knitting, but I'm not sure how you'd do this style of moebius knitting (knitting from the center out) for something that's a lot smaller than the circular needles. You might have to knit it flat then sew the short ends together (with a half twist to create the moebius).

I found an old pair of circular needles that are smaller but still have a long cord and the cord is too big to try and do a small amount of stitches on for the coffee sleeve. So I need to go buy a smaller pair and try again.  Cheesy

Thank you very much soozeq! This would work the same way if i switched to smaller needles and smaller yarn correct? I was thinking last night... What if I made coffee cup cozies that are moebius? How cool would that be?! Except I think I would want to all knit on the outside.. So if I wanted that I would knit for the first half then purl for the second right?

Yes, you would knit half the sts and purl the other half. Though you would have to keep the twist in the same spot, maybe tack it down so it doesn't move.

I'm with the others, I'm not sure you could knit something that small center out, but it's worth a shot. You might have to use 2 needles to make it work.

Sorry it took me so long to reply. I really appreciate all the help you have given me. I finished 2 moebius cowls! Actually I made 3. The first one was the tester to see how I liked it and is super small and I have no clue what I will do with it!

Here is the link over to the finished cowl's I made! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=412524.0

Again I thank you for the help!  Grin

You mentiioned the jog when changing from a knit row to a purl round - that can be minimized. Slip the first stitch of the round, work around and do that slip stitch at the end of round. Slip the next stitch, change stitches and work the slip stitch at the end. It moves the beg of round over, but it really won't matter in something like this. I use this for doing garter stitch in the round and it's much less obvious.

I think the green cowl is more that variegated yarn doesn't look that great in garter stitch, stockinette might work better with it.
