Mobius Shawl

Some refer to this as an “Infinity Circle” but it’s also called a “Mobius”. (Google that one) An old friend used to wear one of these and I always wanted to try making one. One day I discovered a mistake in a shawl that I had woven…I accidentally changed weft yarns when winding new bobbins. Two-thirds of the shawl was a slightly different color than the other third. What to do? Being one who won’t let all of that work go to waste, I put on my thinking cap and figured out how long a piece I needed to make a mobius. I cut that part off and sewed the ends together in a French seam and there it was!  The other piece is now a throw pillow on my couch.
