I developed my Jayne Hat pattern after closely scrutinizing both the Firefly episode “The Message,” and the DVD Easter egg in which Adam Baldwin wears the hat while singing “The Hero of Canton.” After experimenting with several different variations, I finally settled upon the following pattern.

Many knitters can’t resist improving upon the hat’s original design. I feel that to make it a better hat (with really nice yarn, or without the loose strings which dangle from the earflaps) is to miss the point.
