We're getting ready for our first online class from "Deep South Knitting."

Beth will be teaching a 2-part class for the Sunset Moebius, modeled here by the lovely Patricia Short.

Inspiration: Sanibel Island, Florida.


This lacy summer scarf was inspired by the stunning orange and gold sunsets that are the only good part of the hottest, stickiest summer days in Florida. The touches of gold and the sparkle of the glass beads are reminiscent of the glint of the setting sun on the surface of the calm seas of Florida’s beautiful Gulf Coast. Wear it and dream of tropical sunsets, ice cold fruity drinks and tall, well-oiled men fanning you with palm fronds.

You'll learn:
  • An easy moebius cast on
  • How to choose a stitch pattern that works in moebius knitting
  • A lovely beaded bind off for your moebius
  • An alternative tailored and finished bind off for your moebius


  • Live classes: Tuesday, April 17th and April 24th from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. (eastern)

    To take this free class, you will need the book for the pattern and supplies list. Attendance at live classes and access to recorded classes will be by registration only.

    If you have your book already, you mail email your registration request to help@deepsouthknitting.com. Include the word "Registration" in the subject line.
