Pattern Description:

No-one likes to throw away those wee remnants, but what to do with them? Nugget is designed to use up your teeny tiny nuggets of leftover yarn!

This seamless beanie pattern comes in 8 sizes (from small newborn to large adult head), and in 2 yarn weights (8ply/DK and 10ply/Worsted weight yarns).

CONSTRUCTION
Nugget is a beanie knit in the round.
The pattern is written for 2 yarn weights, and 8 sizes.
The pattern starts with a twisted rib brim in the main colour, then sees you working a contrast colour garter stripe, before carrying on with the main colour body of the hat.
You will need to know how to knit small circumferences in the round (using Magic Loop, DPNs, or another form of small circular knitting). If you do not know how to perform this technique you may need to reference a knitting technique guide.
