Super Cat Hat – Free Pattern

I stumbled upon the Pussy Hat Project the other day on Instagram. If you haven’t heard, there is a Women’s March on Washington happening January 21st, 2017 – on Trump’s first day in office. It is predicted that there could be over one million marchers, and the Pussy Hat Project wants to provide those marchers with pink cat hats to make a statement and help activists be heard. It’s a way for those of us who can’t be there to make our voices heard. More information, an official cat hat pattern and an address to send your cat hats can be found at 

If you’re like me, you have a million projects going on and not a lot of time. So I whipped up a super simple, super fast (takes about an hour!) cat hat. Please consider making a hat or two for this project! Here is the FREE pattern…
