Yarn Weight (Yardage and Gauge)

Knitters and crocheters can easily substitute different yarns for different patterns by following two easily guidelines: Yardage and Gauge.

All yarn yardages vary; it is important to calculate the yardage for a project to ensure that you have enough yarn to complete the project in mind.

All yarn knits/crochets to specific gauges. The weight of the yarn, i.e., the thickness, creates the texture of the fabric when knit or crocheted, as well as the number of stitches per inch (gauge). Yarn weight is determined by the following gauges.
