So many of the patterns that I see specify things like: sock yarn, fingering, worsted, double knit, sport - how do you know what type of yarn you´re looking at? Some patterns, for example too, have numbers like 1 thru 6 etc.
I live overseas and the yarn is not marked or graded the same as it might be in the states. Is there any way I can tell if I¨m getting the right yarn for a project? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks! Karen
