FO: Jayne Cobb Hat AKA The ugliest hat ever


I hate this hat. I hate it with a passion. Fortunately, the guy I made it for LOVES it and is very happy with it.

If you're like I was before this project, you have no idea what a Jayne Cobb hat is. Apparently a character in the short-lived tv show Firefly wore this hat and it's become kind of a cult obsession. Why? I have no idea.

I don't think it's ugly, but it is very bright! Is the guy a crossing guard?

hahah no, he's just a fan of the show and wanted a really warm hat. I think it fits the bill

If you've ever watched the show, you'd understand why.

Great job!

A fun hat, rather like having a candle flame on top of your head. :-) We get a little idea about the kind of guy your friend is from this hat... not a shrinking violet. Good job.
