Have you seen the series Firefly?
If not, you're missing out.
Either way, in the series, one of the characters, Jayne Cobb, gets a package from his mother with a hideous hat in it. But, it's from Mom, so he wears it anyway. And he looks like an idiot.
Well, this hat struck a chord with legions of science fiction fans, and a lot of those fans are knitters, and so a pattern was born.
Enter: The Jayne Hat
I love my Scott SO MUCH that I spent TWO HOURS learning how to make a pom pom.
And I've never knitted a hat before, and it actually LOOKS LIKE A HAT.
I call this one a win.
