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 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.
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.
