GENEie is a thinking cap for science fans, designed specifically in support of the March for Science on April 22, 2017. DNA Helicies march up the hat and it is really fun to watch the DNA “replicate” as you knit. There are two versions of the GENEie hat, a colorwork version and a cable version.

Finished Size: Adult S/M - 18” around, 7.85” deep after blocking.

If you want to make the hat longer, you can either add additional ribbing rounds or add cable rounds to the beginning of the hat pattern. For extra cable rounds, insert Round #26 just before Round #1. (i.e. If you want to add 5 more cable rounds then add rounds 22-26 before you start round #1. Make sure you remember to increase 1 stitch every 10 stitches on the first cable round!)
