One of my first designs, Lichen is a classic earflap hat that has been keeping me warm for years! Moss stitch stripes add texture to this easy knit. The earflaps are knit flat first, then joined in the round at the brim and worked to the crown at the top of the head. A fluffy pom-pom can be applied to the crown or, as shown, suspended from the earflaps. Instructions are given for two sizes suitable for the average woman or man’s head.
