Colorwork on this hat is inspired by fractals geometry occurring in nature. It is created combining neutral and neon colorways together into triangles starting at the brim. Then they progressively increase in size, forming the allover pattern. The colorwork is also integrated into crown-shaping and makes this hat an eye-catching accessory from all angles. Accompanied with Tubular cast on and ribbed brim this hat conveniently comes in 2 sizes.
