Jayne Hats

My brother is a geek. He’s quite proud of that fact. So when I mentioned the idea of knitting his infant son a Jayne hat, he was pretty excited. A little while later, his wife leaned over to me and quietly said that a matching one for Jay (my brother) would make it even better. Fast forward 4 months, and you find me gift wrapping a few knitted hats in preparation for sending them down to my little bro and his family in Virginia for Christmas.

I completely winged the pattern to get the sizes I wanted. After browsing Ravelry, none of the Jayne patterns really “did” it for me so I went ahead and worked up beanies in the sizes I wanted. I made some crude notes on the project page, if you want to work one up. Really, if you can knit a basic beanie, my ramblings will make sense.

On to the pictures!

I opted to knit the ear flaps separately and stitch them on. It was easier for me to position them exactly where I wanted them with this method.

My favorite part is the tri-color pom pom. It’s awesome.
