Knit vs. Crochet

Mobius Stole - Done!


I love, love, love how this came out, despite the fact that when I drew my SO's attention to the lace flower motif he said "Oh, I thought those were mistakes."
I originally got the pattern from here but made the modifications of casting on 120 stitches to make it more snug and omitted the single crochet cinching because I felt the edge didn't need it. I don't think I want to block it as right now it has a very pleasant poofiness.

Do you think the moebius shawl can be converted to crochet?

Absolutely! All you need is a reversible stitch and off you go!!!

A google search for "mobius shawl" should come up with several ways to do it--one is here: http://www.planetshoup.com/easy/knit/scarfmb.shtml

What were the final dimensions of your moebius shawl? (I'd like to use a different yarn and crochet hook size). Thanks!

The dimensions are basically that it's a 4-foot long strip joined in the middle--if you're going to crochet one, all you should have to do is make a foundation chain that's long enough to wrap around your chest/shoulders, perhaps a smidge longer. Good luck!
