I want to make this hat with http://www.bernat.com/product.php?LGC=softeechunky
what size needle would you use???

Well, Tahki Cotton classic is a worsted weight yarn (recommended needle size 5-6) and the Bernat is chunky (recommended needle size 10) So you'd have to do some converting to even use that pattern, or it would turn out gi-normous. I think. :?? You might be able to match the gauge with a smaller needle, but the drape will be off.
(Blind leading the blind here, lol)

I found red heart super saver i have ...what about the guage for it . I tcalls for size 8 ...you think i could use 7 db points and just do it tight?? I have size 1,2,3,7 db points. That pattern calls for size 5 db points.

As long as you can match the gauge, you can use whatever. As long as you find small enough needles to knit about 4.5 stiches per inch
