The Tip Jar

Did you know that there are US and UK terms for yarn sizes? If you see something calling for 4-ply yarn, it doesn't usually mean yarn with 4 plies, it means fingering weight yarn. It could also mean yarn with 4 plies. To tell, first check the gauge. If it says "20 sts in 4 inches", then it's probably US terms,  calling for a worsted weight yarn with 4 plies. But if it calls for "28 sts in 4 inches" it's probably UK terms, calling for a fingering weight yarn.

Here's a link with a good explanation, and here's an easy chart on Ravelry.
