Use any size needle or yarn! It really depends on the use of the finished project. For a tablecovering or doily, the smaller needles and #10 or #20 threads are perfect and provide the best detail and stitch definition. Mercerized Cotton blocks the best and has a gorgeous sheen. I use alot of Valley Cotton products from (WEBS).

Then, some people make them into blankets from needles anywhere from size 4(US) to 8(US) and worsted weight yarns.

My favorite yarn/thread size is 5/2 Mercerized but love the 3/2 Mercerized and 8/2 Cotton Linen as well.

I've done the Alita Egeblad and Stor Lyesdug
