This hat is great, definitely the warmest hat I have owned. I had to look through many before finding one that did not have a pull in the knitting. The one I eventually went with ended up with a pull after wearing it only a few times, luckily I was able to just tuck the string back underneath others. It has come back out a few times, but each time I am able to just tuck it in. Seems that they don't sew the ends of the yarn in anywhere, so with wear the ends just kind of start to stick out. I still love the hat, and will not return it over this issue, just thought a little extra attention to the end strings would have been nice. Overall, a very warm cute hat, just takes a little diy.
