Lichen & Moss Hat

We are very excited to add the superb Lichen and Moss Hat pattern to our online pattern collection! This pattern was designed and generously donated by Sue Lazenby.

”Lichen & Moss is a 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 cold 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.”


What you need to get started:

  • Double knitting weight yarn 225 – 250 yd / 205 – 228 m per 100g. Preferably all wool or a wool blend.
  • Approximately 212 yd / 194 m (236 yd / 216 m). Including the pompom, which is optional and uses about 17 yd / 16 m.
  • US # 6 / 4.00 mm & US # 8 / 5.00 mm (or sizes to achieve gauge), dpns, long circular (for magic loop) or 2 shorter circular needles, depending on your preference for working in the round.
  • One stitch marker.
