Moebius scarf pattern/instructions

jhmarco | Posted in Patterns on

I tried to make the Moebius scarf that was described in an old issue, but it simply did not work.  The instructions were very sketchy.  Did any of you get it to work, or have you sewn a Moebius scarf from other instructions that you would share with me? 

It is a loop of material with a half twist in it (like the moebius ring from math class) that makes in tie in an interesting way.  Thanks!                       –jhm

    Do you have the number of the issue handy?  Perhaps someone else reading it may be able to offer a suggestion.

    The instructions for Vionnet's Mobius scarf are in Threads, No.91, p.92ff. However, there were apparently some goofs in the pattern instructions. First, enlarge the gridded pattern by 740% (not 400%). The scarf takes 2.5 yds of 45-inch-wide fabric, and uses 1/2-inch seam allowances.

    Happily for me, I've inherited the red/black/gray scarf shown on p. 93, and it's fun to wear. The final seam was never sewn, though, and is only safety-pinned in place. When the scarf is worn, the pin never shows.

      Thanks so much, Carol, that helps a lot.  I am still confused if I have the 740% enlargement--does that make my resulting pattern piece (the wedge shape that will be cut on the fold) about 15" long? 

      I love that scarf shown in the article!  You are lucky to have inherited it!  --jhm

        Yes, I think that center piece is about 15-16 inches long. You can probably draft your own version of this if you like, just making it approximately the length that's shown and whatever width seems to work for your fabric.

        The scarf is fun to wear--no fussy tying, and yet it makes this great loopy bow that's a pretty nice fashion statement!

    Do a search through the archives, there was quite a discussion about how to make that scarf at the time the issue came out.
