In this episode of B.Hooked TV you’ll hear about the eight different yarn weight categories and we’ll share some of our favorite types of project to crochet with each.
Where you live in the world has an impact on the way yarn weights referred to.
On the surface, yarn weight seems like a pretty straight-forward topic but we actually get lots of questions about it. As you get more into crochet and reading patterns and following some of your favorite YouTubers, you may hear different names for the same weight.
After you’re finished watching this episode, we recommend you have a look at our Essential Guide to Yarn Weight. It’s packed with even more information and is a good article to bookmark to refer to when you run across a yarn weight name you’re unfamiliar with.
