More about THAT hat
My #pussyhat is famous. I've had lots of requests for image use. If they were honorable requests and supported the cause, then I considered them. My favorite request was from Tracy in Northern California. I'm supposing she saw my hat photo right here on my blog. My co-worker, Nicole, was the model for the hat.
Just a simple little iPhone photo, clean with pretty good lighting and nice knit-stitch definition, and now my hat is a star! Tracy is a whiz at PhotoShop! She has been posting her creations, using my hat, to bring awareness to the Women's March in Washington, D.C. and all over the world.
Today's illustration is epic. If only!
Here's a direct quote from Ravelry, the yarny site that got all of the #pussyhat knitters and crocheters organized, "This weekend, millions of women and friends marched all over the world, many of them wearing “those pink hats.” The PussyHat Project was an amazing display of what can happen when knitters, crocheters and other crafters unite behind something that is important to them. The project, started by Krista Suh and Jayna Zweiman, had a group on Ravelry & resulted in over 8000 projects in Ravelry under the pattern designed by Kat Coyle but many more than that since some project entries are for multiple hats and some folks used other patterns, as well)."
There will be many more opportunities to wear your #pussyhat in the coming years. It's time to knit one for yourself! Below is the easy pattern by Kat. I knit my hat in the round and shortened it. My ribbing is only 2" long and the top of the hat 4", resulting in 6" of knitting in the round. I finished off the top seam with a 3-needle bind-off.
