Forest Ferns Moebius

Be elegant and warm with the delicate pointed leaves of Forest Ferns Moebius. Worked from a central moebius cast-on that grows into a garter stitch band, the points of the cowl are offset, just as ferns are in nature. A feather and fan pattern that is finished with a picot edging and blocked firmly creates the shapes and airiness of fern fronds.

A link is given in the pattern to Cat Bordhi’s excellent video tutorial for the Moebius Cast-on. If you are unfamiliar with this cast-on, do watch!
