Being a beginner at knitting and crochet I am still learning a lot about different yarn weights. The process can be very trial and error. I found a great pattern for crochet lace fingerless gloves and stitched them up in a leftover bulky yarn. As you can see from the pics above it came out looking like a funky cast! I recently purchased some new lighter weight crochet yarns and am really excited to see how they stitch up. I'll keep you posted.
