I'm brand new to Firely and the very first thing I did afetr seeing "The Mesaage" was search for a Jayne hat pattern. Now I just have to get over my fear of dpns.

Heh.  Have no fear.  Remember, no matter how many needles are sticking out of your work, you're still only knitting with two at a time!

If it's any help, I did mine on a circular needle. It's less fiddly but you still knit in the round.

Another browncoat here.  I love it!  Now I want a Jayne hat too...

Looks like it's not too difficult to make, with a circular needle and some thick orange and yellow yarn.  Any recommendations for needle size and type of yarn?  (I didn't read the whole thread, so my apologies if this info has already been posted.)

I just used the size needles for the yarn I got.  I used three different types of fibers and brands of yarn  Roll Eyes but all of them were size 8.    The only modification I did was to CO 84 instead of 64 stitches and I'm glad I did, it would've been too small otherwise.  It meant I had to figure out the earflap placement on my own as well but nothing a mirror and some counting couldn't do  Wink
Good Luck!

Yes, it really depends on what yarn you can get your hands on. I recommend the thickest you can find, it makes the knitting SO much faster! I'm all about the instant gratification!  Grin

And then use the thickness of needle that the yarn band recommends. That's assuming you go and buy all new materials (which I rarely do, in fact most Craftsters probably scavenge through their enormous craft stash like me).
You can definitely find some Jayne hat patterns for free online. I did.  Smiley Show us a picture when you're done!

Well that's only natural, dontchathink? I will  be wearing mine in public in the winter to see who recognises it.

I'd be buying all new materials.  My main vice is cross stitch, so I don't have much in the way of a yarn stash (embroidery floss, yes... yarn, not so much), and I don't own any circular needles.  I may hit my LYS tomorrow, if they're open (I have the day off, for Martin Luther King Day).  I'm sure they'll steer me right.

My cross-stitch stash is bigger as well  Roll Eyes

My recomendation would be to make sure you get the 16" circs.  I made the mistake of not getting the 16" circs the first time around and I couldn't make it connect  Tongue DUH.  So I had to go back and get them.  I also had to use the dpns when it got down real small and it was my first time, definitely awkward but not impossible.

If I can do it, just about anyone can  Grin
