Yarn Weight and Needle Size

I thought I would post a helpful little chart stating the different types of yarn and different needle sizes that work best with each size of yarn. I know how hard it can be sometimes trying to figure out what weight yarn and size of needle to use. So here we are, I hope you find this helpful!

Yarn Weights:

1. Super Fine: Baby, Fingering and Sock. Needle Size(US): 1-3
2.Fine: Baby, Sport. Needles Size(US): 3-5
3.Light: DK, Light Worsted. Needle Size(US): 5-7
4. Medium: Afghan, Aran, Worsted. Needle Size(US): 7-9
5. Bulky: Chunky, Craft and Rug. Needle Size(US): 9-11
6. Super Bulky: Bulky, Roving. Needle Size(US): 11 and up
