Yarn Weights and Gauge Crochet Resources
Yarn Weights and Gauge Crochet Resources by Dearest Debi. Help with picking out the right yarn for your project.
Have you ever wondered why when you buy a medium #4 worsted weight yarn that it's not the same as another? When buying yarn and trying to get the right weight you must also look at the recommended hook size!
Below are two different types of yarn both made by Red Heart. Both yarns say they are a Medium #4 when looking at A & C on the label. Now if you look at B & D this is the recommended hook size to make a 4x4 single crochet square.
Make sure that when you purchase yarn for a pattern that you check out the label of the suggested yarn matches that of the yarn you would like to try. ~Yarn label hook size is used to help identify yarn weight!~ (You should ALWAYS check your gauge before starting a project).
