I, perhaps, have a weird life and a weird family. But I prefer to think of myself as quintessentially American. I have cousins who are Black, Asian, Hispanic, and White. When I was a teenager, our household included two mothers (one black and one white) and four daughters (two black and two white). We called ourselves Sisters A, B, C, and D based on our birth order. Still, as a white woman, I struggle with having white privilege and not doing all I can to oppose the systemic racism in our society. I made and wear this hat to support my sisters and cousins. Let’s all work together to make a better world.

This hat is worked in the round with stranded knitting. You can optionally work the third color on the fist in duplicate stitch.
