I am pleased to share another addition to the GENEie Thinking Cap for Science Fans collection - The GENEie Pussyhat! I spliced the GENEie DNA double helix cable onto the square Pussyhat shape. A bunch of knitters are already planning to knit these hats in green in support of both the Women’s March and the March for Science, scheduled for Earth Day, April 22, 2017.

The GENEie Pussyhat has a DNA double helix cable running up the side of the front and then down the side of the back of the hat. The finished size as written is Adult Large. It is a little big for my 22” head although I can wear it a little loose. It fits my husband’s 23.5” head perfectly.

To make a smaller hat, you can skip the stitch increases immediately after the ribbing portion or you can increase/reduce the total number of stitches between the two cable charts. Start with a multiple of 4 stitches to make the ribbing work out.

The GENEie Pussyhat is the 5th pattern in the GENEie DNA Hat series. Check out the other GENEie hats for more DNA knitting fun!
