Inspired by chilly winters and Nordic sweater motifs, Taiga is a modern and stylish unisex beanie with just the right amount of slouch. Worked up in worsted-weight yarn, Taiga is a versatile accessory that transitions well from fall to winter, and through the chilly transition into spring.

Use approximately 120 yards for the main color and less than 5 yards for the colorwork. Taiga can be worked up in two different shades of the same color for a result that is both stunning and neutral enough to match everything. Or, use your imagination and yarn stash to inspire bold contrasting color combinations to make a striking statement piece.
