The Crochet Mobius Wrap was designed specifically for the 2nd annual 30 Days of Cozy! Since it was all about items for fall, especially items that are hygge, I had to make sure it was huggable. 🙂
For me, any type of wrap is like wearing a hug or a blanket for the cooling weather of fall.
In choosing yarn to capture the coziness, I dove in my stash for some Patons Classic Wool Bulky. I had a ton in my stash that I acquired during the infamous Spinrite Tent sale in Washington, NC several years ago. Yes, several years ago…. we all have yarn in our stash that has been hanging out waiting for the perfect project. And this was the perfect project, as the twist of the crochet mobius wrap helps it stay on your shoulders.
Don’t know what a mobius is? It’s a loop with one twist in it. You can make one by creating a long flat piece, twist one end and attach to the other end. The second option is to create one twist after completing the chain or foundation row, and then each round is worked in the top and bottom of the foundation round. I like the second option because I don’t like seaming and it’s just interesting to work along the top and bottom at the same time.
If you have been around for a little bit, you may recognize this stitch. I just love it so much and have designed four other patterns with another in the works. I think you’ll really love the coziness of this crochet mobius wrap!

- Pattern is written US terms.
- Read the entire pattern before beginning.
- Be careful to twist Row 1 only once before completing the last fdc.
- After the first row, each round is worked along the top and bottom before joining due to the twist.
- Each X-St is followed by a tr, so the Str counts as the tr for the last X-St, and all X-Sts and tr cover 5 stitches.
- The circumference can be adjusted by adding or subtracting multiples of 5.
- The height can be adjusted by adding or subtracting rounds.
