Takka is a simple beanie worked from the bottom up. Featuring a generous foldover brim, color blocking and easy cables, this pattern is the perfect simple-but-not-boring hat. This hat is also an excellent stash buster!
The name Takka comes from the Finnish word for fireplace. I hope it will keep your head toasty warm wherever your adventures may take you! The name was suggested by Sanni J (@sannila_ on instagram). Thank you, Sanni!
