Pattern Description:

Lichen & Moss is cosy hat with an interesting but easily remembered pattern, making the ideal quick knit for last minute gifts, as well as a useful accessory to see you through the cooler months. It is worked in two sizes, which can be adjusted for length depending on the amount of slouch required. An optional pompom adds the finishing touch. It makes a perfect partnership with the Lichen & Moss cowl.

Medium (to fit 20" - 21.5" / 51 - 55 cm)
Large (to fit 22" - 23.5" / 56 - 60 cm)
The brim uses a slip moss stitch which is thick, yet quite stretchy and it will fit a range of sizes. A small amount of slouch is written into the pattern. If you'd like more (or less), it's very easy to adjust the length as required.

The detailed instructions are both written and charted throughout, including explanation for the Alternate Cable CO (another could also be used).

The pattern has been fully tested and tech edited.

I live in rural mid Wales in a small house, well insulated with yarn. When not compulsively knitting shawls, I can be found pottering in my garden and finding inspiration from the welsh countryside.
I've recently begun designing my own patterns and especially love working with texture and colours, although I love lace designs too. I try to create patterns that are easy to use and aimed at the ...
