I’m sure I can’t be the only one who hoards part balls of yarn leftover from larger projects, or who has skeins of handspun that were interesting to spin, but produced too small a yardage to be useful for very much. The yarn used in the samples were from part balls I’d already used to make some colourwork mittens, a shrug, and one of my first forays in to corespinning. This pattern allows you to combine these small amounts of yarn to produce a warm, easy to knit hat, it’s called Brib, because the Welsh for scrap or fragment is brib.
