For my foray into the world of mobius knitting, I chose the Mobius Cowl pattern by Bernat. It's a free pattern on the Bernat website. I didn't have any Bernat Roving, the yarn the pattern was designed with, in my stash. I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in the Claret colorway, using US #13 circular needles. My version of this cowl has two twists instead of one, making it more cushy.
The stitch pattern called for in this pattern was the brioche stitch. I therefore got to do two new things while working on this cowl. Brioche is also pretty easy, and using this bulky yarn, the cowl worked up very quickly.
