This pattern is part of Lost in the Woods - a collection of 12 patterns by three designers – 6 garments, 6 accessories – inspired by the forests we love.


Lichen is a truly magical thing. Two very different elements working together create an enchanting whole that is more than the sum of its parts.

Like the Old Man’s Beard that decorates this mysterious pine and juniper forest, mohair lace and cosy sock yarn combine in a clever twisted construction to create an ethereally beautiful hat that is also snug, warm, and (thanks to the insulating underlayer) absolutely itch-free.

240 (290) m / 260 (320) yds of fingering weight yarn
300 (370) m / 330 (410) yds of laceweight mohair yarn

Choose a fingering weight yarn with a good bounce and recovery, and a fine laceweight silk mohair blend with a high silk content.
