Pink Cat Hat Free Knitting Pattern

Pink cat hat

Make a pink cat hat and get involved with the Pussy Hat Project.

If you haven’t heard, there was a Women’s March in Washington on January 21st, 2017 – on Trump’s first day in office.

It was full of women wearing knitted pink pussy cat hats and the Pussy Hat Project provided those marchers with pink cat hats to make a statement and help activists be heard.

It has also been a way for those of us who can’t be there to make our voices heard.
