There are two 'cape' patterns in Cat bordhi's first book: I did one and it could be called a poncho (but then, I don't wear ponchos :-)). I loved knitting it.

Erggh that is a 'cheat-Möbius' - done with a twist only.

I think some of Cat's latest efforts might very well create a poncho möbius ,

so turn the pattern around - if you know your gauge - cast on enough stitches for 38 inches, join with a twist, knit in pattern until the fabric is 15 inches wide; change to a contrast colour - knit a row or so and bind off very loosely.

the dimensions as given seems small to me for "fits most", I would think most people would prefer about 18 to 20 inch depth , and I suspect you would want your circumfrence to be several inches larger then bust size.

other then that - choose a lace pattern and have at it!

Choose a lace pattern -- but be sure to choose one that is either reversible or attractive on both sides. I just ended up frogging a lace trellis moebius because lace trellis just doesn't look good on the wrong size.

If one is doing a giant one, Porcupine Stitch in Barbara Walker's second treasury would be a good choice, or Feather and Fan, of course.

This is interesting... I have always seen the moebius done with a twist and a sewn end. Is there another way? I don't have any of Cat's patterns, so I've never seen this...

Cat's method has you knitting from the middle out, so there is no 'cast on' edge. It is very cool.

The method described above will not give you a true moebius. It will result in a full twist instead of a half twist. It won't lay the same when worn.
