PussyHat Project

The knitting and crochet community is ablaze right now with the Pussyhat Project. New knitters and crocheters are joining forces to learn the craft, and seasoned makers are crafting up a storm to generously make hats for strangers across the country. It is always inspiring to see crafting bring a community together as this project has.

PussyHat Project Hats

The energy is infectious and the ladies of Fancy Tiger couldn't stay away! Here's a roundup of all their personal pussyhats they made!

 Laura's PussyHat Project Hat in Madelinetosh DK

Name:  Laura Doty
PatternKitKat Hat by Andre Sue. Because I used DK weight yarn and the pattern was written for worsted weight yarn, I used smaller needles and cast on more stitches. I used 16” circular needles in US size 6, and I cast on 96 stitches.
Yarn:  Madelinetosh DK in Beach Bonfire
What inspired you:  For years, I’ve been a big fan of the way Ravelry has connected knitters worldwide to form a vibrant knitting community, and I found it very inspiring to see so many of these community members join in on the Pussyhat Project. I wanted to be a part of the movement so I made one of these hats, and then I couldn’t stop knitting them! They’re such quick, easy knits; I’ve actually made seven so far. Plus, I’ve been admiring Madelinetosh’s Beach Bonfire colorway for ages, so I jumped on the chance to make something out of it.

Amber's PussyHat Project Hat

Name: Amber Corcoran
Pattern: Variation of the Pussyhat Project Hat (cast on twice the number of stitches to work in the round, worked 2x2 rib for 8" and finished with a three needle bind off)
Yarn: Single-ply, Aran weight handspun from a mix of Shocking Merino, Pansy, Red, and Magenta Corriedale and sparkle Pink Flamingo
What inspired you: Honestly, at first I wasn't sure about wearing a pink, pussy eared hat. Pink isn't usually my thing, but I really got inspired by all the badass women and men that are participating in this project, and the conversations and community it has instigated. I started thinking about the visual statement about togetherness and inclusiveness that the project aims to make at this weekend's march. I'm excited to join in with this community of thoughtful folks. I just cast on for another hat--I have just enough of this fiery pink handspun left to make a mini pussy hat for my little niece, and her first Women's March!

Kelly's PussyHat Project Headband in Malabrigo Rasta

Name: Kelly McGoun
Pattern: Golden Fave Twist Headband by Mama In A Stitch
Yarn: Malabrigo Rasta in Baya Electric
What inspired you: I decided to make a Pussy Project hat because the the excitement from everybody who have come in to purchase yarn, donate/pick-up hats has been contagious and I wanted to be apart of something bigger than myself.

Tiffani's PussyHat Project Hat in Lamb's Pride Bulky

Name: Tiffani Whitney
Pattern: I made it up! Knit in the round...
Yarn: Lamb's Pride Bulky in Antique Mauve
What inspired you: I think it sends a powerful message of togetherness, awareness, strength, and love at such a turbulent time.

Lauren's PussyHat Project Hat in Malabrigo Worsted

Name: Lauren Wright
Pattern: Worsted Weight Pussy Power Hat
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in Black Forest
What inspired you: I wanted to make a hat that showed my support for all the amazing ladies of the world! I'm not into pink, but I am into equal rights!

Kelly's PussyHat Project Hat in Malabrigo Rasta

Name: Kelly Garrison
Pattern: I made it up!
Yarn: Malabrigo Rasta in Porrinho

Miranda's PussyHat Project Hat

Name: Miranda Harp
Pattern: Cast on 112 sts with Judy's magic cast on and winged the rest
Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Maxima from stash
What inspired you: How could I resist making such a quick + powerful hat? Two hours from cast-on to bind-off and it's back to fighting patriarchy!

Kaylee's PussyHat Project Hat in Madelinetosh Merino Light

Name: Kaylee Lockhart
Pattern: Dazzle Hat by Katy Osterwald
Yarn: Madelinetosh Merino Light in Pink Clay and Nectar Madelinetosh Unicorn Tailin Tart and Neon Peach
What inspired you: The energy around the movement is so infectious! People are learning to knit and generously crafting for strangers. It is hard to stay away from that enthusiasm!

Heather's PussyProject Hat in Freia Handpaints

Name: Heather Beckman
Pattern: Freia Pom Pom Hat
Yarn: Freia Ombré Super Bulky in Cochinilla
What inspired you: I am marching for Women’s Health Rights, Sexual Assault Victims, LGBTQ Equality/Rights, NonViolence, Peace, Love, Respect, and Unity. I march against Racism, against the normalization of “Locker Room Talk” and Sexual Assault, against Discrimination. There are so many more things that I cannot list here. Most of all, I march for Human Rights and Respect.

Now that the Women's March has passed, for now we do not have donated hats here at the shop to give away (we will still take donations if you have some to give away), and we do not sell them. If you are interested in acquiring a pussyhat of your own, we encourage you to either ask a knitter, crocheter, or sewist friend nicely if they'll make you one, or if you give us a call at 303.733.3855 we can give you contact info for folks willing to take on commissions for them. You can also take our Knitting 101 class, which will give you all the skills you need to make one of your own.

    I don’t know if anyone would like to donate 4 hot pink hats and on black one for my fourth graders that I’m mentoring at the King/Robinson magnet school in Hamden,CT. They are working on an women’s equal rights project and one of my students requested one of her wishes was to have an women’s equal rights hat like the ones she saw in the protests recently. I know that’s a tall order but these children come from many backgrounds, one is a refugee from Africa .

    Many thanks for reading my message, if you want more info PM me! Thank you!!
