Yarn Weight Chart

Yarn Weights
I created the chart below to use as a reference guide when trying to determine gauge for a particular yarn or pattern. I compiled the information from various yarn labels. If anyone has any information to add, please don't hesitate to share. Feel free to copy and paste this chart to your own word document or simply print it out directly. Happy knitting!!!!!
