What Are The Equivalent Yarn Weights?

We receive this type of question every day from fans around the world. The Crochet Crowd, being Canadian, we have access to yarns that our friends in the UK and Australia cannot find on their yarn store shelves.

It’s a hard question to answer because I’ve not had enough exposure to other yarns, outside of Canada / USA to give a firm answer. Most people are looking for the most economic solutions.

I went looking online and found an excellent resource by Sarah London. Sarah has done her homework in cross-analysis of comparing the USA, UK and Australia with giving brands that we are typically using here in North America.

I invite you to review this article called Crochet Talk: Yarn Weight by Sarah London as she has pictures and excellent tables to refer to. It’s a resource that I found extremely helpful when understanding the yarns that I am not typically exposed to here.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
