Kaksi is one of the 11 modern, minimalist patterns featured in Issue 2 of Making Stories Magazine, available on October 29.

“Kaksi means “two” in Finnish.

I chose this name because it is a reversible cabled hat which looks aesthetically pleasing on the right side and wrong side.

So it feels like knitting two hats in one go.” - Camille
