Day 124 and Ramen
I had originally called this True Moebius, but when Kevin mentioned that the stitch pattern looked like ramen noodles, I couldn't disagree at all.
This was my very first attempt at a true moebius piece of knitting and it was really fascinating to see how it knitted up. If you know the moebius cast on, the only other thing you need to know are knits, purls, and cast off.
1 ball Katia Samoa
Size 13 needles, circular, 48 inches
Using the moebius method, cast on 90 sts. (Remember, only count the stitches on the top needle)
Carefully spread the stitches around the needle.
Round 1: Knit every stitch. PM
Round 2 et all: Knit1, Purl1 around. Pass marker. (repeat this row until you're near the end of the ball. Save enough to bind off 180 sts.)
If you counted your stitches properly, this will make a continuous seed stitch and to be honest you don't really need the marker unless you're adamant about keeping both "sides" of the round even.
BO in your prefered method. I find a stretchier cast off is the most attractive of for a standard cast off, use a needle at least one size larger.
