Completed Small Mobius Scarf - Feb 2016

I used an E-hook, a single crochet stitch, and small, local alpaca yarn.

I started with a chain that was approx 21 inches long. Instead of connecting the chain into a mobius twist, I made one row of single crochet stitches first.

Then I twisted the crocheted yarn and connected the ends in a mobius twist.

I started with yarn that similar to a charcoal color or a super dark brown. I crochet around and around in the mobius twist until the color was over 4 inches wide.

Then I switched to a medium grey yarn. I finished with a medium-warm brown yarn.

Approx 13 to 15 inches tall. But it's a tight fit over the head. Once around the neck, it's a snug but comfortable fit. It will stretch out some, probably.

I should have started with a 23-inch long chain.

But I like it. I wore it birdwatching along the lakeshore on Sat, Mar 5, 2016. It was a raw day. Light snow fell while we were birdwatching at Metzger Marsh, ONWR, and Magee Marsh. It was foggy. Temp around 30 to 32 degrees. Light wind. This little scarf looks nice with the colors. It was warm.

I crocheted this scarf in multiple locations: northwest Ohio, southeast Ohio, and northern West Virginia.

I wore this scarf all day on Sat, May 14, 2016, which was a chilly, windy, overcast, raw day. These days occur sometimes in the first half of may in northwest Ohio, especially if the wind blows hard off of chilly Lake Erie.

On that day, I stood outside, next door at our neighbors for our combined garage sale weekend. I birdwatched. The birdwatching was very good. The warblers like the oak trees. Temps were in the low to mid 50s. It drizzled or rained lightly at times.
