This is the sort of project that I love to tackle between larger, more commitment heavy projects. No matter how exciting, complicated or fancy a hat pattern is, at the end of the day it's still just a hat. A totally achievable bite sized project. The Luminosity hat pattern looks way more complicated than it really is. It's all a masterful illusion designed to make your friends and family think that you're a genius when really it was a piece a cake. You are never working more than 2 colours per round and there are no floats longer than 3 stitches, which makes this a great first colourwork project despite the fact that it's knit at a relatively fine gauge and features up to a dozen colours (or as few as 2 if you'd prefer).
It's a wonderful way to use up all those odds and ends of sock yarn that we seem to collect, or, if you're still working towards building up your leftover sock yarn stash, a Mini Skein Set will do the trick very nicely.
Though I'm big into the neon palettes these days (never one to shy away from a burst of colour) I'm really feeling that more subdued black/grey/white and of course, Seabreeze scheme as well. The thing that I will never stop mentioning about colourwork is that there is no end to the possibilities! You can really make a pattern like this your own and I can't wait to see what you do with it!
