The recommended crochet hook size for this worsted weight yarn is H8, while the recommended knitting needle size is US6. Choose it for just about any project, from garments to home decor accessories. It s easy to work with, whether you re new to fiber arts or you re very skilled. This Red Heart worsted yarn comes in a generous skein length of 280 yds, which is enough for a hat or small scarf.
