Craft Yarn Council of America, if I remember correctly, has come up with a numbering system for yarn weights. Fingering/sock/fine baby yarn is designated 1. At the other end, super bulky yarns are 6. Basic worsted weight yarn is 4.

I was just looking through an Ann Budd sock book last night and noticed that she calls for yarn using CYCA #1 , etc. I am not familiar with this terminology. Any help out there on this? Thanks!

I love this pattern! I turn to this pattern again and again when I need a refresher couse in short row heels. I point others to this pattern because the instructions and graphics are very clear and easily understood. Thanks!
