The recommended yarn is really what makes this hat, however, you may substitute with another super bulky weight yarn if you are unable to locate it. You will be pleasantly surprised how quickly and easily this works up!
**NOTE: The yarn that this hat was originally designed for, Martha Stewart Lofty Wool blend has since been discontinued. I now recommend using Patons Cobbles yarn for a similar look and feel.
