How to knit a mobius scarf

Your rating: None
A mobius or infinity scarf is a fun and fashionable way to keep warm this winter. These cosy scarves are also surprisingly easy to make. If you know how to cast on, do a knit stitch, and cast off, you can knit a mobius scarf.
What you'll need: 
knitting needles
1 large skein of yarn
yarn needle
Cast on 40 stitches. This will make a medium width scarf. If you want a really wide scarf, cast on 50 or more stitches.
Simply knit every stitch until the scarf reaches the desired length. Keep in mind that with this style of scarf, like a circle scarf, you will usually not want to make it as long as a traditional straight scarf.
When you are happy with the length of your scarf, cast off. Be sure to leave a nice long tail of yarn, as you will need it for the next step.
Now you will sew the ends of your scarf together using the tail and your yarn needle. In order to make a mobius scarf rather than a simple circle scarf, when you bring the ends of your scarf together, flip one side over so that one side of your scarf is right side up and the other is wrong side up. This will create the twist that gives the mobius scarf its distinctive shape.
Use chunky yarn and large needles to make a thick, warm scarf.
