I chose to crochet this hat with Red Heart Super Saver in Charcoal. I know some people tend to avoid this yarn because it’s not the softest acrylic out there, but I enjoy working with it and love that it washes and wears really well.

You will need less than one skein of this yarn to complete the Vina hat project. I love that I can get this yarn locally for a great price, as I’m sure I’ll be making lots more of these hats for my friends and family.
