Saving paper and ink - instructions are on page 2; you may like to just print page 2 and read the rest on screen. The pattern is only charted, but it’s a very easy chart, so could be a good one to learn with.

DK or worsted weight yarn.

The stitch used is a modified version of Barbara Walker’s Loose Stitch and is easy to work in the round - making this a quick knit with great drape.

Please note that the original version is loose and drapey - which I love, but which might not be to everyone’s taste.

Instructions are given for the original one, but I have also included some suggestions for other things you might like to try (including another version that won’t be quite as loose and drapey).

Many thanks to the testers:
