Hat for Science Crochet Pattern

Science! It’s the best. And it’s important. And it’s under threat. So when I started thinking about what to make to promote the importance of science — and funding for it, understanding of it, decision-making based on it — I immediately decided on a hat (duh), and that I’d feature a spiral.

Spirals appear throughout our natural world, and they’re super fun to make in crochet. Also, starting a project in the round using a spiral makes for a nifty way to make stripes (without loads of ends to weave in).

Whether you want to wear a conversation starter so you can engage with people about the importance of supporting scientific inquiry and understanding, or you’re participating in a March for Science, or you just want a cool hat, start with a spiral and off you go!

And there’s also a certain je ne c’est quoi that makes a book truly awesome to read out loud. A flow of words, a natural progression of dialog, and of course grand opportunities for voices!
