So I was considering knitting a pattern but I don't see a needle size. Suggestions?

Even though there's a typo in the gauge, you use what will get you 4 sts per inch. That might be a little off though, because the hat would only be about 15" around - guess they figured with cotton yarn it's going to stretch a lot. I'd suggest something that gives you about 3-3 sts per inch, so it would need something between a 10 and 11 needle with a medium yarn.
