^^is there any rule against a cotton Jayne hat for warmer climes?

Heh.  Nope.  I did one in Araucania Nature Cotton for a woman in Oklahoma, and am sending a cotton kit off today.  Gotta stay cool!



Colors are the now discontinued #10 for orange, #3 for yellow, and #17 for red.   Man, I hate that they discontinued that orange.

(Actually, the orange might have been a particularly lucky find in #4, which is listed as "salmon."  I haven't seen any #4 as orange as that since, though.  Color varies like crazy even within dye lots in Araucania.)

Yep!  I just did a totally different hat (can you imagine?) for a client, and did the proportions with about ten more stitches in the front than in the back.  It worked out pretty well.  I've heard the proportions should be closer to 2/3 in the front, 1/3 in the back.

Here's a pic of the hat so you can see where the earflaps fell.

(I do sell the hat and am thinking about making the pattern available somehow.)
