Sweet Baby Jayne

To continue the trend of hats and baby items, I present to you... a baby hat! And not just any baby hat, for this is a cunning baby hat. If a baby gets strolled down the street in a hat like that, you know he's not afraid of anything. (If none of that made any sense to you, do not fear. They are just references to Firefly, the source of this pattern inspiration.)

Pattern: Sweet Baby Jayne (a free Ravelry download)
Yarn: Wool-ease in Rancho Red and Gold & Patons Kroy sock yarn in Mellow Yellow (doubled)
Needles: US 8 / 5.0 mm

This hat was super easy and fast to make. About the slowest part was stopping to make a pompom template and then using it. Pompom! Surprisingly fun to do, this took very little yarn to make. I wonder if anyone else would appreciate one of these?

This hat is just the most recent in a list of projects I have been knitting for someone involved with science fiction and fantasy conventions for her first child due in September. She is not in the fandom, herself, so I don't just need patterns from any series in particular. Any other good recommendations out there to ensure this baby turns out adequately geeky if my knitting/crochet can do anything about it?
