The ply may be included on the label along with the size or weight of the yarn; for example, 4-ply worsted-weight yarn or 2-ply bulky-weight yarn. ✓ Recommended hook size (10): Sometimes the label suggests a certain hook size so you can work to the proper gauge for a specific yarn size. The recommended hook size is a good place to start, although you may find that you need to use a smaller- or larger-size hook, depending on how you work your stitches and how loose you want them to be.
