Why the Smallest Number of Stitches?
Jamie and I were talking once as we were working on a calculator, and the subject came up. I immediately figured it out for the stitch pattern multiple we were using and made a rough table which has been floating around my desk ever since. Now I can throw that piece of paper away, and we all can reference what the smallest number of stitches we can cast on for a moebius.
If you aren’t familiar with moebius knitting, you should really try it! Lyon is for fingering yarn, and Lyon Traboules has a calculator so you can use any size yarn, and any gauge!

Soon there will be a related hat available. It will be called Wellington. Check the photo in the gallery and see if you can figure out why.
