Pussy Hat Project – FREE Pattern

If you haven’t heard of the Pussy Hat Project then let me fill you in. It is a project to allow the women joining in on the Washington Women’s March to make a unique statement which will let their voice be heard louder.

The marches have spread into many countries to try and stand up for women’s rights. This project has really taken flight and some companies have noted the sell out of pink yarns.

There are many patterns available depending on what pink yarn you have to hand but I have worked up a pattern using Women’ Institute yarn and size 9mm needles. So if that is what you have available then take a look and get knitting. If this isn’t the right gauge for you then take a look at the Pussy Hat Project website.

Please tag me in the photo of your finished project @lostinknit

Happy Knitting!
