This hat is knit with one ball each of Elann Highland Wool (109 yds per 50 gm ball) in red, orange and yellow colors. I used 2055 Ruby, 9110 Burnt Orange, and 7725 Freesia colorways; Elann discontinued the latter two colors shortly after I ordered mine. This red/orange/yellow color combination is not for everybody, and is probably only interesting to Browncoats. You can substitute any other colors you like for this hat.

This is my first attempt/interpretation of the hat Adam Baldwin wore in the Firefly episode “The Message”. You can see more photos and read more about my JCH journey from my blog.
