Here in the northern US color is hard to come by during the winter months so I designed this hat to bring in a bit of brightness into the dark. A Dab of Neon is a beanie/toque style hat knit in the round on circular needles using a dark color for the body and a brighter color for the contrasting bobbles. It’s knit in reverse stockinette with thin knit ribs, then there are three stranded colorwork rows of bobbles and then back to the ribbing which comes together in a star burst pattern at the top. An added pompom gives a final burst of color.
