…and still haven’t started your Pussyhat Project! If you’re like me, using worsted will be the death knell for your hat because it will take too long; however, I want to wear one! In the interest of saving time, I whipped out my calculator app on my phone and started with some baseline numbers. As most of you know, when modifying a pattern, it’s a combination of math and “feel”, so if your noggin is…let’s say, anywhere from 19 – 22″, these numbers should work for you.
I searched my yarn and found every other color in the rainbow, except for pink. Typical. So the mock up here, will be just that. As soon as I can find a ride to my LYS, I will be purchasing the yarn to make for me and a friend of mine. So don’t worry, I know. The color here is wrong!
In the interest of not being sued, I will generalize the information about the yarn by not giving the brand. They’ve already dealt with me before, and to keep it brief, let’s just say my issues are that I am a California girl, born and bred – LOL! Anyway to the modifications! Using two skeins bulky gauge yarn and #13 knitting needles, cast on 28 sts. Follow the instructions as written, keeping in mind that the bulkier yarn may make the ears larger – I’m doing it anyway!!! And that’s it.
If you don’t knit, or would prefer a crocheted version, I found this pattern: https://www.pussyhatproject.com/crochet/
Need to find where the march is in your state? I googled “women’s march 2017” and put your state. You will be able to find information. I checked some random states, and was pleased to see all had at least a Facebook page. Hope to see all my sisters, be you female, male, transgender or otherwise, out marching with us on Saturday 21, 2017.
