I was chatting with my friend while knitting something or other on one of my round looms. We were talking about what the looms could be used for, and of course we came to hats. My friend said that she wanted a Jayne hat. One google search later, and I was looking at Adam Baldwin wearing one of the goofiest looking hats I had ever seen
. "I could make that."
For all the Firefly fans out there, this is my copy of the hat that Jayne Cobb's mom made for him. Wear it in good health and tell the world, "I am afraid of nothing. Also, I like Firefly."
As an added bonus, there is a mini copycat instructable within this one. I modified stoneleafmoon's pom pom technique
slightly to make it a bit quicker to make.
To make this hat, you will need:
red, orange, and yellow yarn (I used acrylic worsted)
a 36-peg round knitting loom (the green Knifty Knitter
loom is perfect)
a yarn needle
Optionally, you may want:
a loom hook (there are tools made for knitting
, but I use a Kobalt pick
row counters (I use a tiny abacus that I made using this instructable
