WPI Project

I will list WPI (wraps per inch) for different yarns in my stash here for referencing purposes 🙂  It will make substituting yarns easier (I hope).

If you are interested in how to measure wraps per inch (WPI) and want to see what kind of difference it will make in a crocheted project, I invite you to read this post by June of Planet June.  I have referenced her blog post so many times over the last year – it is that helpful!

You can also view this video from Teresa (Crochet Geek) to show you how to check the wpi.

I will be adding to this chart as I go through my stash – if you want to assist in this collection, please send me a message with the wpi and yarn type and I will add them to the chart – remember not to wrap too tightly!  Try to keep the integrity (appearance) of the yarn strands the same as they are in the skein.  When I first measured my bulky yarns to compare them I pulled them snuggly…but it doesn’t give a very accurate result.  So gently wrapped and barely touching the neighbouring strand on the ruler is the way to go!

Happy Crocheting!
