We all know that pussycat hats were the must-knit accessory for the women’s marches, but now that scientists are planning their own march on Washington (sure to sprout many others across the country), Studio Knit suggests picking up your needles again to knit a brain hat.
Originally developed as a Halloween costume, this fun hat involves knitting a beanie and a whole lot of I-cord, which is stitched on the hat to make the brain wrinkles.
This is definitely not as quick a project as the pussyhats, but it is a nice idea if you’re heading to a march or know someone who is. Or just for fun for someone who works in the sciences.
There’s also a Facebook group if you want to knit your hat with other people (virtually).
