    Cool Hi from a newcomer.

    My name is Lisa and I love to crochet! I learned how about 30 years ago but am still confused about yarn choices. Can anyone tell me what the different types of yarns are, what projects use which yarns and how to tell which yarn is which? Any help you can give me is greatly appreciated! Looking forward to being a member of this awesome group!

    This article can offer you some assistance regarding yarn types. As for projects, the yarn you choose is how you want your project to look. For instance, if you use a bulky yarn, then you will need a larger hook and your project will be bigger. If your use a thinner yarn with a large hook, it will give you another look. For me, anything goes.
