I know I promised ages ago that I would start putting some patterns up here for people to knit but I have been busy with other things. But I have finally pulled my thumb out of my butt and written up a pattern that I'm going to give to you. Absolutely free! Cue excited squeeing here.
Sea Foam Mobius (sort of) Cowl
By Evil McWeevil Handicrafts
Finished size: this is pretty flexible as it depends on how big you knit it. I stopped when mine was big enough for a cowl, but you might want to make yours longer.
Yarn: my yarn is about equal to a commercial 4ply but you could easily use something else
Needle(s): I used a 5mm circ.
Notions: 2 stitch markers (M)
Gauge: I tried to make this fairly loose and lacy but that’s entirely up to you
Notes: The stitch is based on Seafoam pattern by Barbara Walker.
slip 1st stitch of every row purlways with yarn in front.
knit last stitch of every row tbl.
Using provisional cast on method, CO 46sts (or multiple of 10 + 6 for seafoam) + 8 for edging.

Continue with this pattern till piece is desired length and then, ending with a 7th row, take the bottom corner of your cast on end of the piece and fold it so that the bottom corner is now at the top and graft the two ends together.
Hey presto, you have yourself a mobius like thingo with a cute little eyelet edging. YAY!
