All our yarns & needles at a glance

Below you can find all the information for Bergère de France hand knitting and crochet yarns, including yarn weights (3 ply, 4 ply, Aran, worsted, sport, sock, etc.) and matching needle sizes.

Use this knitting yarn guide to find equivalence for using your stash yarns with our patterns or using our yarns with patterns from other designers. Simply find a similar weight and/or swatch size (rows and stitches).

Make sure you do a swatch with your own yarn and needles before starting your project, as you may knit tighter or looser than our standard swatches. If your swatch doesn't match, you can adjust slightly by switching your knitting or crochet needle size up or down.

Some yarns have recently undergone a change in suggested needle size which in turn has changed their recomended gauge.

Yarns in italics are no longer available for sale.
