Lichen Moss Stitch Stripe Earflap Hat

This pattern is available for C$4.99.

PLEASE NOTE: pattern has been edited to address gauge problems and now calls for an aran (or heavy worsted weight/ light bulky) to get gauge. It now has a more generous fit for an adult head

Simple Moss stitch knit stripes add texture to this easy-to-knit earflap hat. Using Rancho Tranquilo Bulky Alpaca yarn, ‘Lichen’ is sure to keep you toasty as the Autumn turns to winter. A fluffy pom-pom can be applied to the crown or, as shown, suspended from the earflaps.

Skill level: Easy

One skein of Rancho Tranquilo Bulky Alpaca (Shown here in Handpainted) or approx. 200 yards of Aran weight yarn.

Some great colour changing suggestions:
