Sport weight yarns are ideal for lighter weight garments and accessories that still knit up quickly. If you’re planning to make socks, make sure to choose a yarn with nylon for strength.
Recommended needle size: 2.5mm - 4.0mm depending on the fabric you require for your project.
For socks: 2.5mm - 3.0mm
