Luminous Flux is the measure of the perceived level of light. With this high-vis hat, you will certainly be easily perceived! The bold graphic look is created with a textured colourwork technique that is half stranded knitting and half knit-purl patterning. Choose your style and knit either a slouchy hat or a beanie.
The hat has been designed to use our woollen spun Severn (Jacob wool) yarn, but any toothy non-superwash wool will work well. If choosing your own colours, try to select a light, medium, and dark shade to ensure that each one has enough contrast against the others.
