The yarn is basically the same but in UK patterns the required yarn is usually measured in weights rather than length. We usually have double knit, Aran chunky or 2,3 or 4 ply. I had never heard terms such as worsted, fingering or sport until I started reading American patterns, but I found conversion charts online such as http://www.yarndex.com/ helpful to work out substitutes
