So now there will be a scientists’ march on Washington, and one expects that all those who believe in science will be with them in person or in thought. One must be prepared for such things: and so, the brain hat pattern. Please pass it along.

Less visible of a statement and more of maybe an in-joke (if joke is the word) but certainly a cool project would be the double-helix DNA scarf that I remember its creator knitting for her thesis advisor while working on her PhD, back in our Knitlist days.

A friend is taking the double helix cable, making a headband of it, then will pick up stitches around the top and make it into a hat. Her husband plans to go.

The brain hat is cool, but what a lot of icord! And the pressure to get it in place so that it looks even close to accurate, whew. I think the idea of making the scarf is more appealing to me. Making it into a hat is a good idea, too!

I do think the polar bear hat is not getting enough attention (climate change). I think I’ll be making a bunch of those.

Those are both awesome patterns! I think perhaps a brain hat will be a good project for my granddaughter who will be attempting a hat next. I’ll give her some help with it – that’s a lot of I-cord. However I expect hers may end up as a Hallowe’en hat as I doubt she’ll be participating in a science march.

What wonderful ideas – and these protests just reinforce my words from a previous comment. I have great hopes that Americans will write a definition they can be proud of.
