Women's March 2018 - Quick Pussy Hat pattern keep resisting

Here is a quick, free pattern for knitting the pink #pussyhat worn by many women marching at the first Womens' March in 2017. The pink cat hat pattern is available in knit and crochet patterns. #WomensMarch #2018 event is scheduled for Jan 20 and 21 and will be held in many locations around the world. Find out where to march near you.  Knit this quick pussy hat with two strands of yarn hiding in your stash.  I used two balls of DK yarn to quickly knit it on a US 10.5 (6.5mm) needle for last year's march. #womensmarch #resist. You can also use chunky or bulky weight yarn to get the gauge. This very quick little pussy hat has been knit numerous times and continues to be worn in peaceful protest demonstrations around the world. Click through for the pattern. There's even a baby girl version!



Here is my very quick, very short knitting pattern for the Pussy Hat:

With 2 balls of DK yarn, used as one strand, or use a bulky weight yarn and cast on 54 sts, using a cable cast-on and a US 10.5 (6.5mm) circular needle. Gauge is 3 sts = one inch.

Join and work K2, P1 each round for 9.5 inches. Turn inside out and cast off, using the three-needle cast off. Whip in ends. Voilá! This hat measures about 18" when stretched. To enlarge this hat, add sts in multiples of 3 sts. NOTE: if you've cast on an uneven number of stitches, k2tog at end of last round before casting off. There is no special pattern for the ears, just a knit square. When you put the hat on, the kitten ears appear.

Gauge is approx. 3 sts = 1 inch. One strand of chunky yarn can also be used in the free pattern. This yarn is "Grace," silk and wool, a Louisa Harding yarn, 110 yards each. There was approximately 1/4 of each skein left. Happy knitting and stay together, #resist! #WomensMarch2018
