Twisted is a mobius cowl that is so fun to make. Each round goes completely around the top and bottom of the cowl because of the mobius twist. It has a center of double crochet and a lace edging. Twisted can be worn in a variety of ways, keeping your neck warm in style!
ABOUT OUR DESIGNER
Jessie is a crochet and knit designer, a crafter, a blogger, and a mother of twins.
She has been crocheting since her great grandmother first handed her a hook at the age of 8. In 2007 she became a stay at home mom to twin girls. Shortly thereafter she started Jessie At Home as a way to share photos and stories of the girls with her family. Eventually she started adding crafty posts in, then patterns, and it just kept evolving until it became the fun crochet, knit, craft and family blog that it is today.
Since then she has earned several awards from the CGOA Design Competition. In 2013 she started designing for others outside of Jessie At Home. She has had patterns published in various on and offline crochet and knit publications, including RedHeart.com, I Like Crochet, MainlyCrochet, and Crochet! Magazine.

Due to the 1/2 twist added in while making the first round, this piece is worked in a mobius. This means when the first round is done, it will appear as though 2 rounds have been completed. Each additional round will add onto the top and bottom, appearing to add 2 more rounds.
