  • Can you please double check your pattern instructions? I dont see a sh in the instructions except for at the end of row 1. Should it be “sh” rather then “sc” throughout the instructions?

    • Hi Elisa,

      Yes, there were a few errors with the instructions, and some of the “sc”s should have been “sh”. The pattern has since been updated and is correct as written.

      Thank you, and sorry for the inconvenience.

    What is a half twist and Sh? I have no idea where to get instructions for this Cowl. I’d love to make it but can’t because I have no idea where to find these stitches.

    • Hi Michele,

      A sh is a shell and is made with 5 dc in the same stitch. A half twist isn’t a stitch at all but is formed when you take your work and actually fold it over, or add in a slight twist, to form the mobius shape.

  • Looks so easy to crochet. Can’t wait to try it this weekend. Thank you for the pattern.

      Think of the Moebius as an infinity symbol. There is no beginning or end. To create this effect, you will take your chain, and PURPOSEFULLY add a twist to it when joining to work in the round. This will create a loop with no true beginning or end. Sh is defined in the special stitches section as a “shell”

  • There are no instructions on how to make the moebius stitch. Half twist in foundation chain ???? Beautiful pattern I would love to make this cowl.

      In this case, there is no “moebius stitch” Think of the Moebius as an infinity symbol. There is no beginning or end. To create this effect, you will take your chain, and PURPOSEFULLY add a twist to it when joining to work in the round. This will create a loop with no true beginning or end.

  • What is a sh? It is mentioned in the last line of the pattern notes. I don’t find it listed in any of the abbreviation lists.

    • Hi Madelyn,

      A shell (sh) is 5 dc in the same stitch. The pattern has been updated to show this special stitch.

      Thank you,

    I’m assuming sh means shell but no mention is made of shell in the 2nd row. Also in row 2 says to repeat from * around, but there is no * at the beginning of row 2. So do I go back to the * in row 1?

    Reply
    • Hi Shirley,

      The pattern had a few errors, and some of what should have been shells were incorrectly posted as single crochets. The pattern has since been updated, and all information is current and correct.

      Thank you,

    • Hi Frances,

      Round 1 reads, “Rnd 1: Ch 150, half twist ch and join with sl st in first ch to form large ring, ch 3, *sk 2 ch, sh in next ch, sk 2 ch, dc in next ch; rep from * around to last 5 ch, sk 2, sh in next ch, sk 2, sl st in 3rd ch of beg ch 3, turn.” – as you can see, after you form the large ring and chain 3, the repeat section begins and is denoted by the asterisk right before “sk 2 ch”

      Thank you, and I hope that helps!

  • instead of twisting on beg rown of ch sts cant just twist entire project after 10inches is done then whipstitch togeher. to me would make project so much easier than trying to complete in a “figure 8” style . would my way also create the ‘mobieous’ style, just asking. thx

    Reply
    • Julia W.

      Working the pattern flat is certainly an option. As the pattern is written, it is a true mobieous with no beginning or end.

    Lovely design and was easy to start off…thanks for the colourful pattern

  • I would like to make this, but not as long. Am I correct to figure your pattern has 50 shells per round ? So to make it shorter we could decrease foundation chain stitches in groups of 3 (= 1 shell) ?

    Reply
  • In row 2 and again in row 3 it says to sl st in 3rd chain from beginning. Does that mean the same stitch as row 2? I am a new crocheter and am not clear on this also why can’t I download this to facebook?

  • I don’t know the answer to today’s question; I don’t think I’ve ever worn one! I do love them, however. My very favorite sweater has a cowl neck. I should make this one and find out!

    Reply
  • I can’t stand anything touching my neck so I do not wear cowls or scarves or even turtleneck sweaters.

    Reply
  • I usually make button cowls, from all patterns my chest is big enough no need to add a bunch of yarn, lol

    It would depend on how long it was. I like to feel snuggled but not choking.

    Reply
  • I have never worn a long cowl, but I would imagine I would wear it wrapped around twice, since that’s what I do with my scarves

    Reply
  • It depends on what I’m wearing and on the weather. If it’s super cold I always wrap it double. Thanks for offering the patterns and a chance to win a subscription. It’s been on my Wish List for a long time.

  • Depends on the length and when. Twice for wearing with winter jackets, once for a more relaxed look while at work with a plain top.

    Reply
  • If I lived in an area where I could wear a scarf I would wrap it once. More than that and I feel like I am being choked. lol

    Reply
  • Shirley E.

    I only wrap a cowl once unless it is extremely long. That hasn’t happened yet.

    Reply
  • I do not tolerate cold well, so for winter I make mine extremely long so that I can wrap it three-four times.

    Reply
  • I don’t own any long cowls, but I have a shawl I wrap around like a snuggly scarf.

    Reply
  • Depends on how long they are. If they only go to my chest, then 1 wrap. If they go down towards my waist, double wrap. I don’t like ANYTHING tight around my neck!

    Reply
  • I’ve never worn one, but I would probably go once regularly, and twice when it was really cold. I’m looking forward to making one so I can find out!

    Reply
  • I’m not a big cowl person, myself, as my problem is being too warm, not too cold, lol!

    Reply
  • I’ve been pining for a Cowl that is loose and long and yet I can change my look thank you for this great pattern
