View Full Version : Crochet Thread/Yarn Sizing

04-25-2008, 07:27 PM
I've got some size 10, 3 ply mercerized crochet thread, would it be larger in say a size 30?
And is it available larger?
What about the yarns/threads marked 10/2 and 8/2, is this weight and ply?
Thanks in advance.

I know a size 30 is thinner than 10. I work with size3 and five and they are thicher. As the number goes up the thred is thinner. I don't know about 10/2 or 8/2 and would be interested to know about it myself. Thanks in advance!!

OMG! This 10 is super thin... thanks... so it sounds like the 8/2 might be thicker. I will definitely look for the 3 or smaller. I want to make a nice, lace tablecloth for my daughter but the 10 is just way too thin unless I live to be around 95 or older. LOL!
