lol hence why I love these boards. I had some orange, red and yellow yarn leftover from my Rikku (FFX and FFX-2) scarf so I just HAD to make this hat! It matches the Rikku scarf perfectly and I can wear them together successfully combining TWO sci-fi/fantasy items ... I feel as though I have reached a state of Nerdvana  Grin

Definitely saw it twice on opening weekend. As for on DVD? Only thrice, and once was with commentary, but I've been busy.

Geek_pride, are you from Australia? You guys get the pimped-out version of the DVD, do you not? I'll bet it's worth the wait.
If by pimped out you mean extras like a blooper reel, commentary and stuff like that, then yeah.
It was worth the wait! My friend had a "Serenity release" dinner party, and I got to wear my Jayne hat!
I'd post a pic of me in my Jayne costume but its just way too embarrassing. I look like Jayne, the way Danny DeVito looks like Schwarzenegger in Twins. The clothes are the same, but something is just not quite right.... Undecided

Nerdvana! Hahaha! Love it!

Don't let that stop you--I didn't let it stop me!   Grin

Once you learn how to do the ribbing without twisting, everything else will be a piece of cake, I guarantee.

I only know the basics and thought it would be really difficult, but it was a doddle!  Grin

I noticed that on the extras on the dvd (possibly this is only on the pimped-out Aussie version), there was a bit of Joss Whedon at a convention in Sydney - two girls presented him with some gifts and one was a teddybear wearing a Jayne hat!

Naw! Really? I gotta get me a copy of this DVD. My friend has one but I'm pretty sure she can't part with it for more than half an hour at a time.

Last time we watched it she was inspired to design a bunch of Serenity quote t-shirts for herself.  Grin
My hat gets quite a bit of wear considering its summer here.

Here's a tragic pic of me wearing it as part of a Jayne costume for a Serenity-themed dinner party. Sadly the Chinese lanterns above my head were cut off in the photo. And sadly I make a very convincing man.


And thats my pump-action super-soaker version of Vera. It's my very favourite gun. Grin
Yeah that's a blue sun t-shirt and  a pair of old gardening gloves with the fingers cut off. The beard was drawn on with eyeliner.  
Thank God I have a sense of humour.  Wink

A short tale of my Jayne-hat escapades-

Basically I knit a ton(9), because all my friends are FFFans, and charged only for wool($10.00CN/hat). Then we wore them around and got stares. One of my friends (one of the non-inducted) even told me the hat made me look like an idiot without me prompting her.  We were even rebels and wore them in the no-hats-allowed school.  I suppose we aim to misbehave. It was the best day ever (sans kidnappings).

Specs-wise, the best colours I could find were in a finer yarn so I doubled up and winged my own pattern knit flat. I didn't see any knit flat Jayne's hat patterns on this thread, so here is a quick outline of mine.

CO an even number of stitches between 64(tiny head) and 80(huge head). Work in K1P1 rib in Orange for 3-5' then switch to Yellow and continue in K1P1 rib until you have close to 8-9' of hat.  On the last row K2tog all the way across and cut the tail long enough to thread it through the remaining stitches on the needle.  Use this long thread to mattress stitch up the side, making sure to align the colour changes.  For the ear-flaps I tripled up my yarn and kind of winged it. 

OK, really winged it.  CO 20-24 st and continue in stockinette for an inch (of so) then begin decreasing as the spirit moves you.  Try to make the earflaps match.  I used some sort of improvised grafting to attach the earflaps to the hat, but you could just pick them up in the first place.

The hats looked rustic in a shiny way. I assumed Ma Cobb wasn't THE best knitter in the world(s) so I left some threads hanging, though the fickle can weave in.  I decided that the Easter Egg hat may not be the same as the original hat, because it really looks like it is all K1P1 rib.  The ribbing also solves any rolling problems, looks shiny, and is very stretchy. This stretchiness means that a 64 stitch hat CAN be made to fit a large headed person (though bigger is better), and also that gauge is usually no big deal.  I used 6mm straights.

Good luck with any hat endeavors of your own!

I'll post a picture eventually (The digital is on the fritz).

geek-pride, you make the sweetest Jayne ever!  (Though I think the most menacing goes to that cute little boy several pages back...)

Pieces,

Joanne
