Mobius Shawl, Cowl, or Hood!
One of the fun things about a mobius is the variety of ways you can wear it! Throw it around your neck when you head out the door, and pull it down over the shoulders when it gets extra chilly.
Then pull it up in a hood for the really nasty weather!
I had to wait a few days to be able to get some pictures, but here you can see some of my favorite ways to wear the Golden Halo Mobius!

One Halo = One Mobius
I used exactly one skein of Caron Colorama Halo O'Go to make the Golden Halo Mobius. And I was obviously inspired by the color when coming up with the name! This yarn was lovely to work with.
It has a fantastic "halo" of fuzziness that adds interest and texture. But I didn't find it any harder to frog than a smooth yarn! I definitely recommend picking some up and giving it a try!

Clearly I am doing something wrong. I got the twist at the end of row 1 but after that I dont see one. Are we supposed to twist it at the end of every row?
No, after you have joined to the top of the first stitch, it should be one row all the way around. Have you watched the tutorial video?
I’m in the same boat as Sherrie, when I finish rnd 2 with the bphdc it always ends on the bottom blue marker instead of the top yellow marker in the video. Are we supposed to keep flipping the ends?
No, there's only the one flip. Are you joining to the top of the stitch at the end of Rnd 1? There shouldn't be a way to get back to the blue marker. It's so hard to guess without being there!
Tamara, I have watched the video and did the FDC so I had the 204 stitches I even used a yellow marker for the top and blue one for the bottom so I knew I did the twist correctly. I do see the twist at the end of round 1 so I am good to that point, but from there on I see no twist. I am going to do the entire Mobius all the way through (I start frogging at round 8 since I don't see the twist every time) maybe I just need t finish it and the twist will appear? As I watch the video I can't picture what yours would look like since it's a sample size but I see what the finished product looks like in the beginning of the video. Wish me luck, lol. Maybe the 5th time will be the charm 🙂
It might help to go ahead and sew closed that first end, sewing into the side of Rnd 1!
In re-reading this... you didn't FDC 204, right? just 102?
will give it a try 🙂 Thanks
Yes, sorry 102 ;-P
Got it figured out! I was stopping half way at the 102 stitches not realizing I needed to go all the way around.
I FDC 114 giving me 228 stitches around the entire circle. Round 7 decreases the stitches by 1/3 leaving 152 stitches around. Is this correct? Will the second repeat of 2 to 8 rows stay at the decreased amount of 152 stitches?
Hi Kathy! If you include the chains, the stitch count for each round is the same. 🙂
The dc2tog, ch1, skip a stitch is making two stitches in the row over three from the previous row. Decreasing stitches in the row. Am I reading the directions wrong?
Hi Kathy! The dc2tog is all worked into one stitch, as a cluster. The video tutorial for the mobius linked above demos what I mean. 🙂
