What Yarn Should I use?

I used #4 worsted weight cotton yarn for this bucket hat. The Yarn I used is a blend of cotton and polyester, but you can use 100% cotton yarn. If you would like to use any other yarn like Acrylic you definitely can! That hat will the be perfect for chilly days!

I used Yarn Art Eco-Cotton XL Blend in the color Gray which comes in 200g/7.04oz (220m/240yds). If you can’t find this specific yarn then you can use something like Lily Sugar ‘n Cream 100% Cotton or Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Yarn.
