The April hat, 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!
