How much yarn do I need?
So to give you a better idea I have created this handy chart that also compares across all yarn weights.
Fingering: Very fine yarns used for delicate openwork. Perfect for lightweight shawls.
4 Ply: Fine yarns used for most types of projects producing a lightweight fabric.
DK (Double Knitting): The most commonly used yarn weight producing medium weight fabric. Suitable for practically any project.
Aran: Slightly thicker than DK and can be used for the same projects as DK.
Chunky: Works up fast with great stitch definitiom, producing a heavy weight fabric. Perfect for hats, scarves, garments and homewares.
Super Chunky: Perfect for supersized designs and works up super fast too! Perfect for cosy garments.
Jumbo: Blimey, if you use this yarn, you are full of stronger stuff than me!
