A Cowl called THE WALL
Ingredients: A skein of bulky yarn for warmth in white, or any colour you fancy. Needles as recommended on the yarn label. Gauge, does not matter.
Pattern as follows:. Cast on 72 stitches. Slip the 1st, knit the next 3 sts, (every row). Knit 4, Purl 4 to the last 4 sts Knit the next 4 sts. (every row)
Continue this 4 st. Rib and the knit every row the first and last 4 sts., with the slip 1st stitch until you can fit it around your head loosely. Cast off loosely. Then sew the beginning and last row together.
If you want a looser,, Lacey look, you can use finer yarn and a larger needle set. Knit more rows to make it longer, almost, or even to, scarf length. Another hack is to use two different sizes of needle, such as a 6mm and a 10mm, so that you get a really stretchy, loose look.
If you want to make a scarf, I recommend after casting on, to knit every row for 6 rows using the smaller needles together (then do the larger needle, smaller needle knit) and when you decide the scarf is long enough, knit every row for the next 6 rows ( using the smaller need,lea) and then cast off loosely.
