Best Yarns To Use For Crochet Hats
In general, a wide variety of yarns can be used for hats. Summer hats are a little different, though. You want your hat to be light and breathable. The most common yarns used are cotton or raffia. Cotton blends would also be a good choice.
My favorite go-to cotton yarns are:
Some other choices:
Lily’s Sugar & Cream
Paintbox DK Cotton
