We have prepared a table for you in which you can read off the usual needle sizes and the corresponding stitch samples. These mesh samples were created with our color gradient yarns made of cotton and polyacrylic (50/50).

For solid works such as sweaters, you tend to use smaller needles (for 3-thread NS 2.5) while for airier works such as scarves you tend to use larger needles (for 3-thread NS 3).
