Several years ago I noticed a member of my knitting group was creating an infinity scarf which started in the centre and knitted round a moebius loop so that a 'row' was actually knitting on both top and bottom of the cast-on, and the scarf/cowl grew outwards from the middle.

I'd love to try this, but I'm no longer in touch with the person who made it, and I really have no idea how to search for the recipe on Ravelry.

Can anybody direct me to a pattern which works like this? It just sounds like such a fun way of knitting a figure-8 scarf.

I haven't tried any of these - but would one of these patterns be of any use to you ... Infinity Scarf Patterns to Knit Today.

That sounds like Cat Bordhi's moebius cowl. There is no longer a direct link to the pattern - you can google it for a youtube video as a introduction to the style of knitting, and she has a craftsy class for moebius knitting. Otherwise her pattern on her website is for a lacy version of the moebius cowl, which may be more involved than you want? But the basic cast on and how to knit is essentially the same.

Cat has been teaching her Moebius class live for many years, prior to Craftsy. I had the opportunity to take it when she came to our local annual knitting event a few years ago. She's an excellent teacher and I highly recommend her class.

The Fall 2000 issue of Spin-Off had an article and directions for knitting a true moebius scarf using unspun roving.

I've made two scarves using those directions -- you cast-on, and then pick up stitches between the cast-on stitches, so you are knitting from the center of the moebius to the outer edge. You wind up with a very tight curl to your cable needle by the end, so I don't recommend you use a cable shorter than 40 inches, and longer if you have it.

This is the one I used (several times).

I also used Cat Bordhi's cast-on, a very useful video.
