Let's be cute damn heroes!
No nerd knitter worth his/her yarn weight has not at least contemplated making a Jayne hat despite the controversy. It has the perfect combination of being both easy to recognize and easy to execute.
This pattern was specifically designed for my Tentacle Kitty plushie, but modifications are easy for the toy of your choice. Gauge is about 5 stitches x 7 rows per 1 square inch (knitter, know thy gauge!).
You can't stop the signal!

Cut yarn leaving long strand (for one of the dangling yarn bits at the end of the earflap) and pull through remaining stitch.

Using all three colors, Make a pom pom and attach to top.
