Politically correct Pastafarian wear for the crochety

Okay, got this off of Skepchick via Knitting for Change:
a crochet pattern (sorta) for a Pastafarian Flying Spaghetti Monster (may you be touched by His Noodly Appendage) Hat! (the page is copyrighted, but I got permission to post the photo from Sparky, the creator of the not-quite-pattern)

Ah, but how to make such a deliciously ridiculous and pious piece of millinery politically (as well as religiously) radical?

1) use organic wool and recycled chenille (or better yet, real SILK chenille)
2) make sure your meatball yarn is dyed using organic natural dyes (tomato sauce might work, but it's probably not red enough; might have to use something else to get the right shade)
3) use wooden or shell buttons for the pupils
