Pompeii Möbius These strips of crochet fabric have a pretty flower centered in the rows. The addition of large chains at the beginning of each row is an important design feature to join the strip into a spiraling fabric. The edging is worked seamlessly right onto the Möbius in one continuous round. Using a long-striping yarn adds visual interest and mystique about the construction, but the Möbius would look gorgeous in a solid color, too.
