Harmonia’s Rings: Moebius and More
Tickets at $110.00
The Harmonia’s Rings family (cowl, tunic and sweater) use Cat Bordhi’s Moebius cast on to achieve the uniquely spiral neck shape. The cowl sits cape-like over the shoulders, and flatters a wide range of body types. This class introduces many techniques: the Moebius cast on, shaping and texture within the Moebius structure, and the charming beaded picot bind off, among others. Sivia will discuss customizing the cowl shape to fit any body type. This class is guaranteed to take you Through the Looking Glass and back!
Materials required to bring:
Yarn requirements will vary, depending on whether students would like to make the cowl, tunic, or sweater. The cowl pattern is included in the class handout. The tunic or sweater pattern will need to be purchased separately.
Cowl: Worsted weight yarn, at least 500 yards, or more for a longer cowl. We will go over possible modifications for size, shape, and length.
Tunic: Worsted weight yarn, 600 (690, 720, 860, 900, 920, 1050) yards for Women’s XS (S, M, L, 1X, 2X, 3X), to fit 32 (34, 36, 41, 44, 46.5, 49)” bust. Tunic has little or no ease in the bust, so keep that in mind when choosing your size.
Sweater: Worsted weight yarn, 690 (825, 875, 1040, 1090, 1130, 1290) yards for Women’s XS (S, M, L, 1X, 2X, 3X), to fit 32 (34, 36, 41, 44, 46.5, 49)” bust. Sweater has little or no ease in the bust.
Size 8 (5 mm) circular needle, 47″ (120 cm) long.
Cables with connectors in the middle (as in some interchangeable needle sets) are not suitable.
Stitch markers in 2 colors
Steel crochet hook, US 14 (0.75 mm) for placing beads
25 size 3/0 seed beads, or roller or crow beads (found in craft stores)

Please don’t feel that you must learn the cast on from the video. Some people find it easy to do this, and some do not. You will go over the steps in detail in class, and Sivia has a slightly different way of explaining it than Cat does in her video. She guarantees that you will learn it during the class.
