Yarn by Weight

Please review the yarn in this section comparing the yarn suggested by your pattern.

How to use this section!!

When we try to select a yarn we look to see what weight suggested in the pattern. I.E. The yarn suggested by Christy Kamm for the Zick Zack scarf available on Ravelry is Lang Yarns Mille Colori Baby which is a fingering weight yarn. Therefore we would look in the Fingering/Sock weight section of this site.
