Jayne Cobb Hat

Jayne Cobb Hat Fall is here! The weather is beginning to cool down in NY, and hats and scarves are once again the fashion accessory of choice around the city.
I was recently asked to make a hat based on the one worn by the character Jayne Cobb in the show Firefly. I’ve never seen the show, but after looking at some pictures on the internet I discovered that the hat definitely has an autumnal color scheme/feel. It was the perfect project to transition into the season.
I started by following this pattern, but quickly realized I had to adjust the sizing for a smaller head. I also decided to decrease stitches at the top instead of closing the hat by weaving it shut.

My brother is the model in the pics above. He’s a good sport.
