The knit brain hats for the science march look much more complicated, and I’m worried that may have put some people off, and stop them having the same impact as the Pussy Hats did.
But they’re not that hard, I promise!
It’s actually pretty simple to knit a brain hat for the science march (although you’d have to start right now to get it done in time!). Just coil icord all over a regular hat. Copy a picture of a brain, or twist it up in imaginative loops and swirls. Unlike Pussy Hats, which were fairly, well, uniform, each Brain Hat will be unique. If you’re really pressed for time, you could just knit the icord and use it to cover a hat you’ve already got.
If only all science was that easy.

Gansey, guernsey, jersey. What on earth am I talking about? A sweater, of course. You know the sort I’m talking about. A deliciously cabled, blue sweater, perfect for cold days. You might call it an aran sweater, or a jumper. You almost certainly do not call it a ‘knit frock’ like old books do. Whatever […]
