Lemon Peel Mobius Cowl, a crochet pattern

The Lemon Peel Mobius Cowl is an easy design that utilizes the lemon peel stitch and foundation double crochet stitches. That’s it!

If you’re not familiar with the lemon peel stitch, it’s just a simple repeat of single crochet in one stitch and double crochet in the next stitch.

If you’ve been hanging out with me for a while, you know that I really enjoy this stitch since it’s easy and creates lovely texture.

Here are more patterns that use this stitch combo. It’s so versatile!

Not sure what makes this cowl a mobius, it’s the twist. The correct spelling is möbius, which refers to a one-sided surface that is created from a rectangle by holding one end fixed, rotating the other end 180 degrees, and joining it to the first end. In the crafting community, we just refer to the mobius as a twisted infinity scarf.

Okay, fact time over!


I love visiting Michaels for when I want to see some new colors that may not be in the stash, and it’s only 10 minutes from my house. When walking through the store one day, I noticed an awesome acrylic tweed yarn by Loops & Thread, which is Michaels’ own yarn line. I’ve worked with their yarn before, and enjoy the softness and variety of color choices in each Loops & Thread yarn. Also, tweed yarn is just fun to work with!

Since this mobius offers a mixture of lemon peel stitches and double crochet, using two colors would create an interesting look that attracts the eye as it tries to follow the colors around.

Lemon Peel Mobius Cowl, a crochet pattern


  • Advanced Beginner
  • Pattern is written in US terms.
  • Read the entire pattern before beginning.
  • Be sure to count and use a contrasting color of yarn or stitch markers to place every 10 or 20 stitches, so you don’t miss a stitch at the beginning or end of the second round and after making the twist.
  • Since the twist is made first, each round covers the top and bottom of the previous round, so there are fewer rounds in the pattern than what appears to be created in the final cowl.
  • Be sure to turn after each round.
  • CSDC can be replaced with a ch 3.
  • Cowl can be made thinner or wider by making fewer or more rows; such changes are not accounted for in the yarn total.

  1. Hi, Courtney! I love the look of this cowl, but I can’t find the pattern. I see the materials, gauge, size, pattern key, special stitches and techniques, experience level, and notes. But unless I’m missing something, I don’t see the actual pattern. Can you help?
