First: What is Worsted Weight Yarn?

If you're a beginner, or you're just not sure what exactly worsted weight yarn is, here's an easy explanation. Worsted weight or 'afghan' yarn is categorized as medium weight by the Craft Yarn Council.

The typical gauge for this type of yarn is 11-14 stitches and the recommended hook size is I–9 to K–10-1/2 (5.5—6.5 mm). Worsted weight yarn is the most popular yarn for knitting or crocheting and is used for throws, afghans, and wearable crochet items.

Other examples of projects you can make with worsted weight yarn can be seen here in our collection. You'll be surprised at the versatility of worsted weight yarn.

Crochet scarf patterns and crochet hat patterns frequently call for this type of yarn, and designers enjoy working with it.

HELPFUL HINT: If you want to see all of our worsted weight yarn free crochet patterns, use the advanced search at the top left of the site. Select (4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches) under the 'Yarn Weight' drop-down menu, and click "Find Patterns."

I think its a great idea to have some patterns categorized in this way. So often Ive had a stash of a particular yarn and wanted to make something with it, but all the patterns I found seemed to be for much different weights. Yes, I realize I should be able to figure out how to use a different yarn by working up a swatch and comparing the tension etc, but how much easier it would be to have a group of patterns written specifically for the weight of yarn I have on hand?
