Ribbed Möbius Crocheted Cowl

By  Marie Segares  for  Kollabora

This reversible ribbed pattern by Kollabora, created with front and back post crochet stitches, makes a stretchy cowl and is a fun, one-skein project. The cowl is worked as one rectangle, crocheted on the long edge, and then twisted once to create a Mobius effect before joining the short edges.
