Moebius pt 3 – working a bit


Rating: 5
This is just to finish up what the previous clip started. I couldn’t fit actually working a bit in pattern into that clip, so this is just in case anyone wants to see what it’s like. It’s really very straightforward, though. Since the edge of the moebius loop is continuous, there’s no turning involved. Just work until you reach the stitch marker, and then slip the stitch marker and keep going in pattern. I didn’t have time to finish the scarf and demonstrate binding off, but any stretchy bind-off works great, and finish the last stitch like you would for any project worked in the round. A stretchy edge is necessary because knitted fabric isn’t very horizontally stable, so when you tug the finished loop open, it will stretch out and settle into its finished dimensions (especially if blocked). A stretchy bind-off will let it settle comfortably as wide as it wants to go. I like stretchy bind-offs for scarves and more stable bind-offs for stoles and large pieces. I mention pieces that I’ve worked in this k2p2 pattern before. There are no clips of these pieces, I have them in my Ravelry project pages.

Lots of cool knit and crochet items!

Seamless Crochet: Techniques and Designs for Join-As-You-Go Motifs

Join the seamless revolution

Traditional motif seaming techniques require crocheters to painstakingly sew together hundreds of seams and weave in countless ends. Not with Seamless Crochet!

With Seamless Crochet, innovative designer Kristin Omdahl has pioneered a new technique for crocheters of all skill levels to create motif-based patterns in one piece, eliminating seams and leaving only two ends to weave in. Kristin’s revolutionary modular construction allows one motif to flow into the next, creating secure joins and beautiful geometric patterning on the exterior round.

Inside you’ll find a showcase of 18 garment, home decor, and accessory projects from Kristin that will change the way you crochet forever. From pillows to shawls to blankets, these projects illustrate just how versatile and time-saving this “tail-free” construction method is. As a bonus, Seamless Crochet also includes a helpful instructional DVD of Kristin explaining the details of her new technique. Plus, the book offers a motif directory of original designs with Kristin’s expert advice on how to adapt any motif-based pattern to her one-of-a-kind seamless technique.

Seamless Crochet will forever transform the way you approach every crocheted motif-based design and project.
