I have seen this scarf mentioned on tv before, was this a trend or is it gonna stay through next winter?
For that price I will come up with my own (in crochet of course). It is really long ,long and very nice looking.

Holy crapola! For that price I can make a couple.

I don't know if it is or was a trend but scarves never go out of style, imho. I have always loved really really long scarves and I think they look great on people so go for it. :)

I'm not sure I'm interpreting it right. The scarf has a loop at one end, so after you drape it you just pull the other end through? Wow! Any one of us could do that for a heck of a lot less money. Neat idea.

That's a great scarf. Looks like a moebius scarf to me. One big round loop. Am I seeing it correctly? Seems like it would be very easy to make. Just make it light & lacy and one big loop, just like the mobius scarf.
Here's what I'm thinking it's like:

I haven't seen that style in a scarf before. I'm gonna say that it could definitely be a trend for the masses this fall. If celebs did last year, then it should have legs over the next scarf season. It's a great idea and can be interpreted in so many different ways. Did anyone see the cover of VK? With Courtney Thorne Smith wearing a scarf? It's three long panels, then you attach the three at the bottom, then loosely braid them, tacking the panels down where they meet another panel. It would be so cool to do this in crochet, or even with more than three panels. I say go for the crochet version!

I'll probably regret opening my big fat mouth, but this would be fun for a crochet-along.

I have that mag and am working the pattern into a crocheted version. It's really quite simply. The knit version calls for all knit rows. So I'm doing the same but with hdc. It's coming along nicely if I would just stop getting interrupted by little things like cooking, straightening, grocery shopping, other crochet projects that are taking priority, etc. And family keep coming down for visits. GRRRRR I have another sister that is driving down tonight. I expect her within the hour. She's driving down from Mt.Vernon, MO (near Springfield/Branson/Lake of the Ozarks). I wanna crochet!!!

I'd be game for CAL on this one. I really like it. The weather is perfect here for it too.

If this becomes a CAL I'd be down for it. I've never done a CAL before. :)

I've never done a CAL, but would be glad to join if someone else got it going. I'm in scarf mode anyway right now.

Did we ever decide whether it's a mobius or a straight scarf with a loop at the end? I think it's a loop. I suppose both could be included in the CAL.

One way to figure it out is to take a regular scarf, criss-cross it into the shape they formed (pinning the ends together to imitate the continuous loop), and then check it to see how many twists that is. When I did this it seemed to be a full twist, as opposed to the half twist of the mobius.

I saw it as a scarf with both ends free, but one end worked as a loop for the other end to slip through. Maybe I'm totally offbase.

We need some better pictures, is what we need. Anybody know another place where this scarf is shown?

Okay, this is definitely just one regular loop. Not only that, but what a friggin' visible seam!! My grandmother would spit on such an obvious seam. Phooey!

http://www.suzanneju...astest-news.htm (you can see the seam in the big picture of Mary-Kate. The seam is on her left shoulder)

Yeah, we can totally do that. I think if someone decides on a long, semi-lacy scarf pattern, we just have to stitch the ends together to form the loop.

This is getting really funny. Our discussion isn't the first one. Check this out from knittersreview.com.
Other people have commented on the very obvious seam. Jeez, can't knitters do better than that?

After looking at the pictures of her Spring and Fall 2005 collections I can't tell if it has a half twist in it or no twist at all.

http://www.suzannejuul.com/main.html

In one shot the model has it hanging loose from her neck and it just looks like a very long mobius, but it could be that it just got twisted behind her neck and it's not visible. Perhaps the knit is so thin and stretchy that it can be twisted many times and still not get bulky. I don't know that I like the look of it the way Mary Kate Olsen was wearing it (kind of looks like a sling for an injured arm to me), but I like the other options that cross the chest and shoulders.
