Zippy Faux Möbius Scarf

Faux Mobious Cowl

The zippy faux möbius scarf is very simple and fast to knit. Worked completely in garter stitch and then a simple twist creates a unique scarf. 

What is a möbius strip? It is a one-sided surface that is constructed from a rectangle by holding one end fixed, rotating the opposite end through 180 degrees, and joining it to the first end.



Knitting loom: Zippy loom (3 zippy looms).

Yarn: Approx: 60 yards of super bulky yarn. Loops & Threads Artisan was used in sample.

Notions: Knitting tool, tapestry needle.


K=e-wrap knit stitch

P=purl stitch

CO=cast on

BBO=basic bind off



Cast on 12 sts (left to right)

Row 1: k to the end of row.

Row 2: p to the end of row. 

Repeat Row 1 and Row 2: 25 more times.

Twist the panel, place the cast on row back on the knitting loom. Each peg has two loops on it.Perform a basic bind off (treat the two loops on each peg as one loop). 

Weave ends in.

  1. Hi, Isela–
    I just bought your Loom Knitting Afghans book, and I’m trying to make the Chevron Throw, but I’m finding the directions confusing, especially when it seems there should be an empty peg, and there isn’t, how to proceed.
    Do you have a video about the chevron stitch? I’ve always found your videos very helpful.


  2. Isela,
    I have admired your creations
    and appreciated your generous, clear instructions
    for several years now.
    I have absorbed your Primer
    and, being a new grandpa,
    I have your Babies and Toddlers book right here in front of me.
    You’re a one-woman educational industry!
    One item I have searched for in vain
    is a Man’s Kerchief type shawl or scarf.
    Something like the Bandana Cowl by Purl Soho would be great,
    and one of Stephen West’s scarves would be perfect!
    What do you think?
    – Shas
