This unique felted moebius bowl pattern is the product of three generations of moebius bowls — inspired originally by Somersaulting Rim Bowl by Cat Bordhi.
This moebius bowl pattern is fun and slightly challenging — bet you’ve never done a moebius with five twists before! Combine Magic Loop with Moebius knitting to make the small bowl and you’ll be very proud of yourself.

The moebius cast-on was invented by Cat Bordhi as a way to start a loop with one twist in it.
The cast-on itself is similar to a provisional cast-on, but then setting up the moebius and checking it to find the twist make the endeavor more complicated.
Working the first round can be a little slow and confusing – I’ve demonstrated the cast-on all the way through knitting the first round so that you won’t get stuck.
