NORDHEIMER is a bottom-up stranded colourwork hat that can be made primarily with leftovers and scraps from other projects. Worked in bright colours, it makes for a bright spot on a cold winter day.

This pattern is for you if… You like very short repeats that are easy to memorize and have a ton of yarn scraps to work through.

Move along if… Managing more than two colours is not your cup of tea.
