I made this hat for my sci-fi loving son. It's a take-off of a hat worn by a character named Jayne Cobb in the TV series Firefly. Apparently the hat was made for Jayne by his mother, so this is appropriate! The colors are very bright - orange, yellow and rust. I used Lamb's Pride and a size 11 needle. The gauge is loose but since he lives in the south, he doesn't want this hat for warmth! He also has an extra large head size so I needed the extra size the bigger needles gave me. The hat is for his birthday and he hasn't seen it yet! It was so simple to do - a tall stocking cap with a pom-pom and then long ear flaps!
