FO: Selbu Modern Hat
"Value in Color"

This week I discovered why the pattern in my Selbu Modern hat is barely visible... Interweave Knits, Spring 2011 explains "finding value in color" where you cancel out the hues to see how close colors are to black or white-- as you can see in the desaturated photo above, both yarn colors are a similar shade, making the pattern practically invisible!
