Help with yarn sub for hat
I saw this hat and wondered...if I wanted to make a lighter-weight hat for summer, could I sub an equally gauged 100% cotton yarn for the wool yarn she used for this hat? Or would the cotton yarn not have enough stretch to lend itself to a comparable finish?

Oooooo.......I hadn't even THOUGHT of bamboo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's a GREAT idea Hildie!!!! I just finished this hat this morning, but I need to redo it so that it's deeper (it was a little bit short for my preference), so I may just forego redoing it in wool and go straight to bamboo! Thanks!!! You enabler!
