 On the dark hat I use Lion Brand Hometown USA in Cambridge Tweed. On the Pink/Cream hat I used Red Heart Homespun with two strands held together. On the gray hat I used a bulky wool, not sure the brand, and Red Heart Super Saver in Charcoal. The Gray hat shows what it looks like when you work in the back loops on Round 7. ( Haven't bought a button for it yet.)
