This is the hat of the legendary hero of Jaynestown from Firefly.
I made this for a good friend of mine, who decided that he needed a new Jayne hat when he lost his old one.

Lookit those loverly colors!

here you can see that my earflaps are pointier than the patterns, but I like them better.

...and ignore the model. I'm being silly. Obviously he's bigger than I, as I am a fairly small girl.
I used the pattern found here after much googling:
http://knitwithkt.blogspot.com/2007/11/jayne-hat.html
with these changes to the ear flaps:
k, SSK, k4. K2tog, K
p, p2tog, p2, p2tog, p
k, ssk, k2tog, k
p2tog, p2tog
BO
I used five size 10 dpts holding the strand double. One skein each of Vanna's Choice by Lion Brand in Honey, Rust and Cranberry going top down. I've about a half a skein left of the first two and most of the skein of cranberry. Which is exciting, as I love the color.

Oh my GOSH!!! I love it! I Love Love Love it! I saw the hat in the thumbnail and immediately thought of Jayne, and the song. That is so awesome! I have to learn how to knit now so I can make myself one of those.

Behind every great crafter is a kitteh, waiting to eat patterns, sprawl on fabric, and attack knitting.

well this would be a good hat to start on after a basic scarf or two. Started and finished in one day. there aren't even any tricky stitches. Hardest part will be casting on, but even that's not terrible.

FIREFLY!!! I just found this series and am hooked, lined & sinkered.

I have to learn how to knit now so I can make myself one of those.
I have to laugh because we all want to do/make/accomplish many more things than we have time for. It amazes me that at one point in my life I didn't want to learn another craft because it was too stressful.

Wonderful hat, btw.  Cool
