When deciding to get started on a new crochet afghan or granny square, there are many things to consider. Depending on the type of crochet blanket you're planning on making, you'll need to make sure you grab the right yarn for the job. For instance, you won't want to choose thin yarn for a cozy winter blanket because you'll be crocheting for a lot longer than if you picked a thicker yarn. 

We have a handy infographic for you to use that breaks down the different yarn weights with a comparison of the most common and distinct different yarn types: lace weight, sport weight, worsted weight, aran weight and chunky weight. There's a breakdown of yarn weight, WPI, ply and even the best type of projects to make with that yarn, from intricate lacy designs to thick and chunky crochet blanket patterns.
