A hand-knit collection of hats wouldn’t be complete without a classic cabled beanie like Ardenwald. Featuring three different types of cables, each climbing their way up to the crown in columns, Ardenwald engages all of your knitterly senses. Knit yours in Shelter for a tweedy feel or in Arbor to highlight the texture of every twist.

Please note: the stitch patterns used in this accessory are charted only.
