I'm wanting to do this for my dh but I'm unsure of what yarn to use (I'm a knitting newbie). Any suggestions? Thanks!

I'm not sure the Paco yarn that the original pattern calls for is around anymore, I recall looking for its specifications when I made "her hat". However yarns that fall in the 16 stitches to 4 inch range of gauge are worsted, so I'd say about anything that is worsted weight, feels nice, and is easy to care for (like a superwash wool or an acrylic/wool blend). Not very specific, but I hope it helps!

Oh that helps tons! Thanks! I'm always scared to pick the wrong thing.
