You can use it if you get the right gauge. Since sprot is thinner than worsted, you'll have more stitches per inch, and therefore, a smaller finished project.
Make a gauge swatch to see what your stitch per inch is. Then you can see how much modifying you need to do.
You might be able to make it work by going up a needle size or 2 (do a gauge swatch), but keep in mind this will make a looser-knit hat.
You can double the yarn, and you'll have a thicker possibly less-flexible fabric.
My advice is to make a bunch of swatches and see where you are.
