Velvet mobius tube - Sometimes your neck needs a hug...

I've been holding my tongue after this election, trying to say something that doesn't trivialize this moment, and I've started lots of posts since then, which will gradually appear in the coming days and weeks, as regular life resumes...

I'm noticing beauty all around us. The trees are glowing beautifully in NYC right now.  A very late peak to the fall foliage transformation.

A wonderful friend dyed some cozy, soft velvet for me some time ago.  Too beautiful to cut, it just recently whispered to me that it wanted to become a mobius tube scarf for the Thanksgiving holiday.  A true, zero-waste project!

In a moment when many of us just want to curl up in a blanket, a mobius scarf is the next best option!

Wanna know how to make one? It is very easy, but instructions are needed to make it turn right side out, and bend correctly when worn.  

Some examples below:

Note: this is just the easiest how-to I could find...

And here's a great post by the wonderful Shams, showing off her versions of the scarf, once made!


  1. What a yummy scarf. I need one! Or two or perhaps more!!!
