View Full Version : Lace weight versus sock (fingering) weight

I have a question regarding the amount of yarn needed for a pattern in the various weights. If I have a pattern that calls for 1100 yds of lace weight, would I need the same amount in fingering weight to make the same garment size?

Probably a little less if you use larger needles.
