if you have a 6mm crochet hook (size I ?) it would give you an idea of the general heft.
I just did a for 6mm braided yarn and got a few hits
When in doubt... make a hat. And feel free to *pin* me.
My Boxing Day CAL counts to date: hats - 27; lapghans 3: shawls - 3, pet snugly -1, slippers -3

That's a good idea! It calls for a Q hook and is only about 8 rounds so that works SO well for me lol. Do you think it should be 3 or 4 strands?
I make great rugs using 2 or 3 strands of regular worsted weight yarn, like Red Heart Super Saver. It's durable, economical, and there's plenty of color choice. This way, you can also tweed a rug, or shade it.

This is a wonderful old method for tweeding. If you have a pattern that calls for normal worsted weight, but you want to tweed it, you can usually substitute 2 strands of sport weight or 3 strands of baby weight. For heavier weights, experiment!
