I have listed the recommended needle or hook size below, but please check tension before embarking on a project to ensure that it fits. (Not so important for a scarf but annoying if your hat doesn’t fit). The hook or needle size depends on the finish required for your creation.
|Yarn Weight||Knitting Needle Size||Crochet Hook|
|Lace||1.25mm – 3mm||0.75mm-3mm|
|4 ply||2mm – 4mm||2.5mm – 4mm|
|Double||3.5mm – 4.5mm||3.5mm – 4.5mm|
|Chunky||5.5mm -9mm||5mm – 9mm|
