Why the name? Well this cowl is named after ‘Tait’ a small one hank neckwarmer with a similar cable that I designed and then decided I didn’t like, hence ‘Tait2’. This unisex cowl is relatively quick to knit and sure to be a warming lifesaver on a chilly Winter’s day. Worked in the round on a circular needle the mock cable and rib pattern repeat is only 6 rounds long so once you’ve got used to working the mock cable you can enjoy the knitting.
