Yarn: Berroco Fuji (38% Silk, 25% Cotton, 22% Rayon, 15% Nylon; 125 yards [115 meters]/50 grams); #9203 Sandy - 2 skeins

Needles: One set of needles in size US 7, one set of needles in size US 10, and one cable needle (cn) or double pointed needle for cabling

Notions: Tapestry needle

Gauge: 20 stitches = 4 inches on size 7 needles

So let's get started! As I mentioned, this piece is perfectly seamless, which means we'll be starting with a provisional cast on. Using your size 10 needle, then, cast on 30 stitches provisionally. Transfer stitches to your size 7 needle, and then proceed as follows with some set up rows, as you'll find below. Oh, and here's the notation we'll need:

front cross (fc): slip 4 stitches to cn and hold in front; k4; k4 from cn

Set-up Row 1 and all odd rows (wrong side): k2, p26, k2
Set-up Row 2: knit
Set-up Row 4: k2, fc, k1, fc, k1, fc, k2
Set-up Rows 6, 8, & 10: knit

Set-up Row 12: k2, fc, k1, fc, k1, fc, k2

Set-up Rows 14 & 16: knit

Set-up Row 17: k2, p26, k2

Knit set-up rows 1 - 17, and then it's time to switch to our size 10 needles and begin our main pattern, which goes as follows:

Row 1: k2, * k2tog, yo, k2; rep from *

Knit this row until piece measures roughly 48" in length. If you'd like to connect the ends WITHOUT a twist (so not a true Möbius strip design), end after knitting a right side row. If you'd like to connect the ends WITH a twist, end after knitting a wrong side row. Switch to your size 7 needle and knit the following ending row:

End Row 1 (wrong side): k2, p26, k2

Transfer provisional stitches to a size 7 needle and then, with your two sets of live stitches and from the right side of the work, graft piece together using the Kitchener stitch (you can block the piece before you do this, if desired). Tuck in ends.
