We have prepared a table for you in which you can read the usual needle sizes and the associated gauges. These swatches were created with our cotton and polyacrylic (50/50) gradient yarns.

For solid items such as pullovers, you tend to use smaller needles (with 3-ply NS 2.5) while for more airy items such as scarves, you tend to use larger needles (with 3-ply NS 3).
