Knit a GENEie Pussyhat For The March For Science – LOVE That DNA Double Helix Cable – FREE Pattern!

UPDATE: This article was originally posted in 2017. In 2020 the March For Science will be on April 22! May the fourth be with you!

This just might be my favorite iteration of the infamous pussy hat yet!

The GENEie Pussyhat is designed by Rebecca Roush Brown of ChemKnits who says, “I believe in evidence based legislation. This is one of the reasons why I will March for Science. I believe that women’s rights are human rights and that human rights are women’s rights. I believe in standing up and letting my voice be heard, and this is why I spliced my DNA cable knitting motif with the pussyhat shape to create the GENEie Pussyhat.”

Hear, hear! Will you be marching on April 22? Better knit a GENEie Pussyhat or two, or thirty-three!
