Did you not get a pussyhat in time for the Women's March on January 21st, but would like to have one anyway, possibly to wear for future activism or events? If you want a pussyhat that's even more catlike, this is the option for you! Has button eyes, and an optional wool felt nose, upon request.
I will knit the hat out of a solid color of bulky WOOL-BLEND yarn (20% wool, 80% acrylic). The entire hat will be the same color (all black, all red, all mauve, all wine, you get the picture). Each pussyhat is knitted in-the-round, so there are no seams anywhere except for a neat and decorative braided-style seam across the top. This helps the "ears" stand up nicely :) The colors of wool-blend yarn I have are:
- dark heather bordeaux/wine
- pinkish mauve/fig
You can choose from blue, green, or black buttons for the eyes. My selection of matching pairs of buttons is limited. See the last two photos for the buttons and yarn colors available. If you have a preference on the specific buttons I use, let me know in a note when you submit your order... otherwise I will choose for you, from the color you have specified.
NOTE: the green buttons in the 2nd column, 2nd from the top, have been spoken for. The others are still available.
The triangle nose can be made of pale pink, bright pink, or black wool felt. LET ME KNOW in a note when you submit your order if you want a nose, and if so, what color you prefer. I sew the noses on with button thread. They are easy to remove by snipping the stitches, if you decide you don't want the nose after all.
NOTE: If you don't ask for a nose I will assume you don't want one! So please request a nose when you submit your order, if you do want a nose. (I think the hat looks a bit like "Toothless" from "How to Train Your Dragon" without a nose :) )
For each hat purchased, I will donate $5 to one of the following organizations. You can choose from:
- The ACLU
- Amnesty International
- Democracy Now
- The International Rescue Committee (IRC)
- Planned Parenthood
- The Sierra Club
- The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)
- The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe (for their anti-DAPL activism)
- The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR)
If I need to re-order yarn to complete your hat, that may add a few days to the turnaround. I'll try to keep you informed if this is the case.
Comes from a smoke-free and cat-filled house! So although I do my level best to keep the yarn away from the cats, the possibility exists that your pussyhat might have one or two ACTUAL GENUINE pussycat hairs in it, included totally free, courtesy most likely of either Sir Rilian Finn (adorable, crazy, and pestiferous blue lynx point Balinese) or Sir Balin Goodpillow (large fluffy gray of uncertain parentage) or the beauteous Lady Camille De Lune (tiny and perfect platinum mink Tonkinese) or maybe even Barliman Buttercat (orange-striped and white) or Grendel (tuxedo cat with a Svengali stare) or Sid Vicious (immense and decidedly un-vicious floor-orca). Enjoy!
(NOTE: If you are EXTREMELY allergic to cats, you might not want to order from me.)
Thank you for shopping with me! :)
