Have you ever used t-shirt yarn before? If you haven/t yet, I definitely recommend giving it a go. For this particular project, I used Lion Brand Fast-Track in the colorway Pink Convertible. However, most of them are basically the same: long, flat, tubular shape and usually made of cotton or a blend of. It provides such beautiful stitch definition and structure to a finished project. Normally with this type of yarn and project, you go down a hook size or two to get tighter tension for a stiffer fabric. With the stitch used in this project, however, I went up 2mm in hook sizes than the yarn called for, from the recommended 8mm to 10mm. You could also use an outdoor-friendly fabric like Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn for an outdoor piece.

This pattern also includes a full photo tutorial for the Horizontal Puff Stitch!
