Kelbourne Woolens Germantown Bulky (100% N. American Wool; 123 yds/100 gm skein): Peacock 440, 1 skein.
A Kelbourne Woolens collection wouldn’t be complete without a beautiful cable design! Ardleigh is a beautifully cabled hat with a little bit of slouch and a ton of texture. Both committed cable lovers and those new to the technique will enjoy the organic, easy to memorize, repetitive pattern. Ardleigh is also the perfect opportunity to utilize one of Kate’s favorite techniques, cabling without a cable needle!
Due to the stretchy nature of the cable pattern, the hat is designed with slight negative ease; the 18” (46 cm)circumference is plenty large to fit an average adult head.
The main body pattern is worked from a chart.
