Anyhow. After the boys saw Libby's hat, they each asked for one. Andrew asked for an orange one,(I only aim to please) and Charlie asked for one with a pattern. Great, Kirsten designed one like that too.
They love them. And like Jane's child, Andrew has told me that all of his friends love it, and want one. Hmmm, I don't think I will knit them all one. However, I would make one for his friend, who is celebrating his birthday.
Yarn: Mauch Chunky. I do not recommend doing the stranded hat out of this yarn. The yarn turned into threads, basically falling apart in my hands.
Needles: size 10 double point.
And yes, I made them hot chocolate.
