The Pussy Hat Project

#pussyhatproject
Thanks to my co-worker, Nicole, for modeling!


I was inspired by rhetoric on Facebook about The Pussy Hat Project. They have a powerful mission statement:

The knit pattern, created by Kat Coyle of The Little Knittery is easy to follow and knits up quickly.

I made two hats this weekend, one for my friend Eve in San Francisco and one for me! You can make a few too! They need more hats for the Women's March on Washington, January 21, 2017. Knit one, send it in! Knit another one and wear it!

I modified the second hat I knit. Instead of knitting a 4-1/4" ribbed band that folds up, if necessary, I knit a 2-1/2" band. We all look good in this hat!
 Blurry, low-light. Sorry, but the hat still looks good on Mr. Larry!


Knit a hat today and send it to the Committee by January 14th If you're local, drop it off at The Little Knittery3195 Glendale Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90039 United States, (323) 663-3838
