Handmade Hats

If you saw any of the photos from this past Saturday's women's marches, you surely would have noticed the pink hats with pointy ears. These hats were all made by hand.

Hats have long been knit or crocheted here in New England where winter weather makes them a necessity, rather than a symbol. No matter why you're looking for a hat, it's easy enough to learn how it's done with basic manuals for beginners.
