How to Choose the Best Yarn for Your Crochet Projects
When choosing your next project, the choices can be overwhelming. Once you've decided on your next project, your next step is to decide on the type of yarn you want to use. For intricate lace-work or doilies, use lace weight yarn. For bigger projects, you can start using light weight yarn. For chunky sweaters and blankets, you'll need the super bulky yarn.
To help, we have a handy infographic for you to use that breaks down the different yarn weights: lace, sport, worsted, aran and chunky weight. For each type, we've listed the numerical yarn weight, the wraps per inch, the ply of each yarn weight and even the best type of projects to make with that yarn, from intricate lacy doilies to thick and chunky crochet blanket patterns and everything in between!
