The hat was exactly what i wanted as far as style, color, weight, and material. Unfortunately about two weeks into my relationship with gray beanie, i tore a tendon in my left ring finger which resulted in my wearing a finger brace for 8 weeks. Well, the splint i had to use had strong Velcro on both sides to wrap a Velcro strip around it. Every time a single Velcro hook nicked the hat, threads would latch on tighter than gum gunked hair, and pull out threads with hat ruining proficiency.
The size is perfect and the yarn quality is excellent. I normally like my beanies to be more slouchy but the style of these are very clean.
Like the color, shape and size. Only downside- it seems to stretch out a bit and doesn’t recover to original snugness. Really like it though.
