The Jayne Cobb hat is the infamous hat given to Jayne Cobb – the gun-toting, ready for a throw down crew member of the Serenity. Firefly was such a great show and a mighty shame it was cancelled after just 13 episodes. But what a 13 episodes it was! In fact, fans helped to ensure that the movie – Serenity – was made. Now back to the hat. Jayne receives the hat from his Mom that garners mixed reactions from his fellow colleagues.
There are several Jayne Cobb hat patterns floating on the Internet and most of them are for knitting. I can’t knit but wanted to make the hat for a huge Firefly fan’s birthday, so I decided to make a mini Jayne Cobb hat in single crochet. It turned out really cute and is something that took very little time to whip up. I may have to make another few as hats for some of our amigurumi because that would just be too darn cute.
