They are even large on my sweet husband but they were made for a son in law with very large hands. My DH kind of hinted that he'd like a pair also but I know he has a pair somewhere in his drawers. I'll have to look for 'em. Men can't seem to find anything right in front of their noses. But I love this pattern so much I think I'll make them also for my other son in law but with a regular knit2, purl 1 ribbing in either black or gray. And yes, I'll get around to making a pair the DH. Navy blue maybe.
Ya, navy blue for the ole sailor!
