Ant Knit Hat

I designed this hat to feature Dr. Deborah Gordon's work with harvester ants. To see a synopsis of her work and Dr. Gordon modeling the hat herself, check out my blog post here. This hat features two pairs of harvester ants that are interacting through their antennae. Dr. Gordon provided a lot of help with the design, insuring that the ants would be interacting through their antennae, just like they do in the environment. 

The pattern for this knit hat is available here on Ravelry or can be purchased directly here.
Harvester ants interact with each other by briefly touching antennae
