Using Knit Picks’ Comfy Worsted Yarn, the hat is knitted using US6 circular or double-pointed knitting needles. That is 4 mm needles if you use the metric system.

You can achieve this neat “stranded” effect by knitting two strands of the same color at the same time. You’ll find a great tutorial that explains this in detail here: Basic Right-Slanting Decrease (K2tog)
