* GUIDELINES ONLY: The above reflect the most commonly used gauges and hook sizes for spefic yarn categories
**Lace weight yarns are usually crocheted on larger hooks to create lacy, openwork patterns.
Accordingly, a gauge range is difficult to determine. Always follow the gauge stated in your pattern.
***Steel crochet hooks are sized differently from regular hooks -
the higher the number, the smaller the hook, which is the reverse of regular hook sizing.
