Möbius Wraps

 

A Möbius strip or band is a surface with only one side and only one boundary component with the mathematical property of being non-orientable. It was discovered independently by the German mathematicians August Ferdinand Möbius and Johann Benedict Listing in 1858.

Translate all that into weaving and you have a lovely round shawl with no ends that can't slip off your shoulders on a windy day!
