Full step-by-step video workshop with closed captions available here, and yarn kits are available here.

Taisce (Irish for treasure or hoard) is a large cowl shaped to imitate the coverage of a triangular shawl about the neck. Taisce is inspired by items from the Treasury in the National Museum of Ireland. It features a cabled panel, which hangs diagonally, against a background of cosy garter stitch. The pattern is worked flat and seamed. It begins with just a few stitches, with gradual increases, and short rows to shape the piece. It uses integrated I-cord edges, and an I-cord bind off.

Cable instructions are provided in both written and charted format.
