So this is my first time knitting a hat!  I used circular needles for the first time too!  And picked up stitches from my original cast on stitches to make the ear flaps.  I think it came out rather well, and you can barely tell where i changed colors (which I was afraid would be super obvious).

So this hat is a Jayne Cobb hat, from the series Firefly, and the pattern I used was from this site http://dryope.typepad.com/grove/2006/02/jayne_cobb_hat_.html

It worked out beautifully, and without further ado, here it is!

Great job!  Circulars taunt me.  Theoretically, I can use them, but my results are not that even.

Quite a cunning hat! I'm running out of my current yarn for Jayne hats, and that yarn looks good so what kind of yarn is that?

And craftyhandbags, circular needles aren't really all that bad.

I ended up using Jiffy from Lion Brand.  (like I said, it's my first attempt and couldn't think of buying the wool and possibly ruining it).  I also used 10 1/2 needles instead of 10, to get the gauge a little more accurate Smiley

Very cute hat!  I tried knitting a hat last fall/winter but I gave up pretty quickly, the circular needs are intimidating!

Shiny! My first hat was also a Jayne hat. In fact, I thought myself how to knit because I wanted a Jayne hat.
Great job!
