Not as good quality as the wine/navy colored version of the same hat, bought a week before

Reviewed by jkid from Chicago on Wednesday, November 25, 2015
First of all let me say I've bought many, MANY items at STP over the years, and this is only the second time I've received something that wasn't made correctly. That's a fantastic record for a company that deals in irregulars, so I'm not complaining.

It's smaller and not as chunky as the one in the other color. It had a huge noticeable defect in which the yarn in one full vertical row did not get knitted in, leaving three strands of yarn unknitted and hanging loose the length of the hat. There are multiple strand ends sticking out the top of the hat which will require tying into the knit; how it made it past inspection is a mystery. Because it still fits, the yarn is soft, and I can work this into the pattern to fix it, I'm keeping it. It would cost half the purchase price to return it.

I have a hard time finding hats that fit my large head and are chunky-looking and soft against my skin, which is why I'm willing to work on this one. It's soft, stretchy and nice looking. While it's not as thick as the other one, I can use it on less frigid days. It's a hat worth repairing, although if return shipping were free I'd have asked for a replacement.
