We've created a new Ravelry group called March for Science - Official Knitting Group on Ravelry details at the bottom!
I wanted to pull together some new ideas for patterns to knit for the March on Science and also reintroduce favorites that many are knitting already. I also found some lightweight choices for those who are concerned about a possibly warm day. I've heard several people saying they're knitting themselves a wool hat and then a cotton one as a backup in case. Truly knitting aficionados!
As I have said before, if we knit in green and blue then the style of hat is less important. I think a common silhouette has been beanie hats or slouch. In the end the color will be the unifying force. And I'm hoping it'll convey a message of focus on the Environment, Ecology and the Earth and push back against denial of global warming. The visual impact of so many marching in defense of our Earth hopefully will make a dent.

"A brimmed and air conditioned hat is practically a necessity for warm sunny days."
Other posts with lots, I mean lots of patterns, over 50 patterns and many free. Some of them are above. Please keep it Green or Green/Blue so we coordinate!
And on knitting for the March on Science, I've teamed up with a Stanford scientist Heidi Arjes who also designs knitting patterns to create a new Ravelry group called March for Science - Official Knitting Group. We'll be working towards clarifying information, like getting mail in addresses to you for hats for Washington, DC and city marches. Also suggesting hats to knit to donate and providing a place for lively discussions, and help for beginners. The board is up, accepting members, and just be patient as we develop it further.
