pussy hat

Untitled
A friend of mine put in a special request for a pink hat with two pompoms for her daughter, beyond that I had total creative freedom. Best kind of request right? Little did I know I was going to have the damnedest time finding pink yarn because everyone else was also knitting pink hats. I legit didn't put two and two together until long after the yarn had arrived. Ridiculous. And amusingly enough she had her daughter wear it at the Women's March and sent me pics! It was awesome.

I used the same pattern as for Seti's hat from earlier in the season because it was such a fun and fast knit and I knew firsthand that it stays on bobbly kids' heads well. I changed the top a bit to make two especially sturdy spots for attaching pompoms though. Super minor change but it made a big difference, the mods are on its Ravelry project page. Any excuse to make more and crazier pompoms is fine by me.

Also please note the fucking fabulous Fringe Supply Co. stitch marker holder db got me for Chirstmas. Sadly it's out of stock because it was a limited run, but she still has this very similar one. Not going to lie, I have that one too. Coming up on three years with it and the natural leather just gets more beautiful. Hell yeah for fun supplies!
