These funny fun hats were a collaboration with a couple of my son's classmates. We did knitting on Mondays this school year which is a great way to begin a week but you miss a lot of weeks do to holidays and days where my toddler kept me home. The timing as well as the strict rule of not taking your needles home to be forever lost did not leave the new knitters much time to complete their first, adventurous projects.
This project was a great beginner task. The ear flaps and brim were each made as gauge swatches. I would recommend the ear flaps over the brim as it did not have much body and more complicated steps would need to be taken to make it more functional.
