Ardenwald is a classic cabled hat that brings snowball fights, sledding, and hot chocolate to mind. Knit in Arbor, it shows off your stitch finess! It is knit in the round from the bottom up, following two charts. The arching cables surround a nest of moss stitch before converging at the crown. The finished measurements are 21.5" around and 8.25" tall. The hat can be hand washed and dried flat. Brooklyn tweed rates this Jared Flood design as skill level 3 of 5 (intermediate).
Arbor is Brooklyn Tweed's DK weight yarn spun of American Targhee wool. It is worsted-spun, so you see a smooth surface that shows of stitch patterns beautifully. In this project, it is knit at 5.5 stitches per inch in moss stitch. Like all Brooklyn Tweed yarns, Arbor is sourced, spun, and dyed entirely within the US.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
