I hurried to get this posted with enough time to finish for those participating in the PussyHat Project. It’s a basic recipe with line-by-line instructions, but assumes you already know the standard knitting-pattern-secret-code-language.

Note: There are 84 sts in hat after the 4 increases--in other words, half the sts are 42, not 44. When you divide for 3-needle bind-off, the division should be in the middle of the cable. Splitting up the cable gives the ears the strength to stand up tall and proud.
