New Crochet Mobius Cowl Scarf: Scalloped Star Stitch Rib

Cowl crochet fever is back again

(The contrasting stripes were experiments that I decided
to leave in and see how they'd drape different ways.)

Fewer rows of this Starlooper: a
neckwarmer that overlaps in the front.
When I added a mobius twist to the Starlooper loop scarf, it multiplied the fun ways it drapes around the neck and shoulders. I created a whole "menu" of NINE looks or wearing options (see the cowl 'menu' montage blogged here). 

I love how this cobalt blue merino wool yarn photographed! The star stitches are lovely no matter what but this soft Z-twisted merino yarn adds to the texture. 

It's a new DesigningVashti.com yarn called Treat Medium-Z that I'm adding to my shop this week. (Click here to check on its status. Better yet, subscribe to my newsletter. My subscribers always get the news first. Sale coupons too!)

Two more photos: the first shows the same Starlooper star stitch pattern in a color-shading yarn.

Treat merino yarn that I'll be adding to my shop also.
It will be called Treat Skinny-Z.)
