A good question... I don't have a yarn in mind at the moment but I thought I'd go to my lys and see what she recommends.
Thanks for all your suggestions.

The yarn they use is a heavy worsted weight (#4) at 16 st over 4 inches..that's 4 spi. Check the yarn you want to use and see what the gauge is. You can check on Ravelry for that, too. What yarn is it you want to use?
