I was right, it's so easy it's silly!
You knit a long piece working from the side. You do a ribbed edge at the start (You'll need to figure out your finished length on your own with a bit of ribbon or a sheet folded longways.) When you have 1 1/2 to 2 feed deep knitted, you can either cast off n join it with a sewing needle or use her three needle cast off.
Bring the non ribbed edges around to meet the center of the same edge (This is the long edges, not the short ends). Leave about 6 or 7 inches open where the edge curves around for your arm holes.
You need to leave 6 to 8 inches of edging from either side that overlaps. Stitch those edges to each other n you are finished.
Like I said, it's so simple it's silly!

Or if all else fails, the pattern is for sale below the video, LOL US$ 7.-

I prefer the sleeves version; I like to keep my arms nice and warm.

Yes Nony, thank you for the hint. I realized that the pattern is available by itself also. If it really just a rectangle I should be able to whip that up on the machine in a very short time.
