Funky Friday - Crochet Mobius Strip Scarf

The Music of Life: Mobius Strip Scarf

I recently decided to crochet an infinity scarf for my friend for Christmas. But (I'm fairly sure at least) infinity scarves are just normal loops. So I decided to make a mobius strip scarf. What is a mobius strip, you ask? It is a plane that only has one side. Which means that if you run your finger down one side of this scarf, you'll end up where you started and you'll have touched both "sides" of the scarf. So it's great for math geeks and those who want to be fashionable!

Materials needed
2 skeins of weight six yarn (I used Hometown USA: Grand Rapids Green by Lion Brand)
Size P Crochet hook

Directions
(I don't normally write crochet patterns, but this is pretty simple, so hopefully they make sense. Comment me if you need clarification!)

Chain 155
DC in 6th chain from hook, chain one *skip 1 chain, DC in next chain, ch 1. Repeat from * until last two chains, DC in last chain. Ch 4, turn, repeat from * across. Do this three more times.

You should end up with 5 rows of waffle-looking squares. Now, take your scarf and make an "0" with it. Before connecting, twist one end. Sew ends together, sew in ends.

Voila! I hope you enjoy this!
