Pride Parade FREE Hat Knitting Pattern
I grew up in a small town not really knowing any gay people or maybe I did but I didn't know it. When I got my first real job I made friends and I liked who I liked. I didn't know that my boss was gay and I really didn't care. She was great at her job and taught me a lot about design. After weeks on the job I asked a passing question about her "husband" and all of my coworkers had a good belly-laugh at my expense.
That moment was a pivotal learning experience in my life about how I live and love. I learned that I really, deep-down, don't care if you live your life differently than I do; if I like you, I like you and that's that. Everyone is different and they are taking a path through life just like I am. I want everyone to have the same opportunities to enjoy each day and that's why I designed this hat. We are all equal. It's that simple. So this is a simple hat with stripes. I sized it from baby to adult so you can make one for anyone and everyone you love.
