I’m writing my patterns in Portuguese and there isn’t much standardized as far as yarn or even terminology in Portuguese. Since most people are probably not going to have the same yarn available as I do in the U.S. I want to describe the yarn with the WPI (wraps per inch) method, which I believe is a good one for figuring out weight.
QUESTION: when describing WPI, is there ONE needle size used to measure WPI, or is it a smaller needle for lighter yarns like fingering than for worsted or bulky?
I’ve never really used this method for determining yarn weight myself but need to learn because sometimes a yarn is described as something and I think it feels like a different weight.
