Rebecca Möbius Scarf Free Pattern

The Rebecca Mobius Scarf free pattern is finally here! Create this elegant striping by alternating from inside and outside of a Scheepjes Whirl cake in Blueberry Bambam, or use any of the gorgeous colorways for a totally different look. Check out my review of Scheepjes Whirl to see all the deets and where to cop. This is the perfect project if you’re trying to make something that will be appreciated by anyone. There is an alternate version without the beads to widen the wearability even more.  The scarf uses about half of the cake, so grab one and make two! You can see the dazzling effect that it makes when the yarn goes from navy blue to cream, and all the shades in between. This is blue jeans and chic stripes at its best. This is one of my favorite projects I’ve ever made, and definitely my favorite wearable. When your hipster 10 year-old likes it, you know it’s a winner… Where to find the Rebecca Mobius Scarf Find this free pattern on Ravelry, Craftsy, and LoveKnitting (soon!). Super-talented Andrea …

Rebecca Möbius Scarf FO Reveal!

You might remember a while back I was playing around with a new cake of Scheepjes Whirl in BlueBerry Bambam, and decided to make a beaded scarf. Check out my review of Whirl for all the details! Well that scarf turned into the Rebecca Möbius Scarf, named after my 10 year-old because she ended up loving the blue colorway.  I pre-strung the beads, and worked alternating from the inside and the outside of the cake. It was surprisingly easy after my tester, Andrea Grimaldi (@ndrgrmld on Instagram) gave me a tip: pull the center end one way, and unwind the outside end toward the opposite direction. This way they never meet and won’t tangle! Brilliant! 😁 Here is my Rebecca Möbius Scarf as modeled by its namesake. The color changes of Whirl with the striping has me absolutely giddy, and the beads give it that added touch. But the beads aren’t 100% necessary and it looks awesome without them! Just ask Andrea – she tested the pattern with the Green Tea Tipple colorway without the …

WIP: Un-named Whirl möbius scarf 

Hello, y’all! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! Today I thought I’d give you crafters an update on how my Scheepjes Whirl* WIP is going.  This is such a pretty yarn, and a total dream to work with. Check out my full review to get a better look.  I’m creating a free pattern specially designed for this yarn – a scarf which is not quite yet named… I can’t decide on a name!! But I’m thinking Rebecca Möbius Scarf will stick 🙂  Here is my progress so far with the gorgeous Blueberry Bambam colorway:  I am alternating between the outside and center of the cake for this pattern, so the color play is divine. You can see the color changes begin with the flecks of the next color slowly appearing. The special twist is perfection! The smooth transitions between colors is my favorite part. And take a peek at Tester Tribe member, Andrea Grimaldi’s WIP! (IG: ndrgrmld) She took some snapshots of her scarf, testing in the Green Tea Tipple colorway.  Look at Andrea’s …

Scheepjes Whirl

Eeeep! Scheepjes adds another sugary-sweet yarn to their collections. I was just swatching with BonBon and Sugar Rush* the other day, and then I heard about the yummy Whirl upcoming release – well you know this girl has a sweet tooth! Check out this absolutely delicious sneak peek photo from Scheepjes: And drooooool over these ice cream-y names! Here are the scrumptious details for these sweet cakes: Made from a blend of 60% cotton/40% acrylic to produce projects that are lightweight and breathable.  Unlike other gradient yarns, Whirl has a generous twist to enable speed while working the yarn and to help prevent splitting. Whirl has a unique twisted plied section, which gives it a characteristic ‘flavour’ all of its own!  This Extra Large yarn cake holds an enormous 1000 meters of softly colour changing yarn, more than enough for a large shawl or wrap.  Each colour change is carefully tied in an optimum way to ensure the knot can be discretely hidden within your stitches.  Recommended hook / needle size: 3.5-4mm Whirl is available in all …
