Understanding Crochet Thread Sizes

Thread crochet is, for the most part, just like yarn crochet. The small differences between the two can make thread crochet a little bit confusing to the crafter who has always worked with yarn. Thread size and hook size are one of the key differences that must be understood to master the art of thread crochet. Once you understand this part, the rest is all in the details.

Guide to Crochet Thread Sizes

Each type of thread or yarn is assigned a number. With yarn, the higher the number, the thicker the yarn. For example, a DK weight yarn is a 3 and a Bulky Weight yarn is a 5; naturally, the larger yarn (in number) is the thicker yarn (in weight). This makes sense to us. However, the opposite is true when it comes to crochet thread. 

With thread, the higher the number of the thread, the thinner it is. A size 3 in crochet thread sounds small and a size 30 sounds much larger, but a size 3 is going to be a thicker thread than a size As the number of the thread goes up, the thickness goes down. This can trick the mind a bit, but once you get the hang of it you'll be okay. One of the best ways to remember this is to make yourself a little chart by taping a small piece of each thread size side-by-side on a piece of paper and labeling each underneath with the size; hang this in your craft space for a visual reminder!

Watch Now: How Crochet Thread Sizes Work

Common Crochet Thread Sizes

You may find crochet thread in a variety of different sizes, particularly if you purchase vintage thread or thread from a foreign source. That said, there are some standard crochet thread sizes.

  • Size 3 and 5 crochet thread is about as thick as a lightweight yarn, with size 3 being slightly thicker than size 5. If you have trouble learning thread crochet, start with these large sizes of thread.
  • Size 10 crochet thread is slightly thinner than most yarn, slightly thicker than size 3 or 5 threads. Beginners to thread crochet often find that this is a good size to start with.
  • Size 20 and 30 crochet thread are common options. Many of the thread crochet patterns that you will find are going to call for one of these two sizes of thread.
  • People interested in working with even thinner thread will find that it comes in increments of 10 (size 40 to size ), with the lower numbers being slightly thicker (but still very thin) compared to the highest numbers.

Choosing the Right Crochet Hook for Thread

When working in thread crochet, it is most common to use steel crochet hooks (which are sometimes called "thread hooks"). If you are working with the thickest crochet thread (size 3 or 5) then you might instead choose to use a small size of an aluminum or another crochet hook. Those are the crochet hooks that you are familiar with from working in yarn. C, D, and E are all good size choices for working with thick crochet thread. Try using a size D crochet hook with a size 3 thread; adjust up or down as needed.

Now, let's talk about steel crochet hooks. These hooks have numbers, and you may be surprised to learn that the higher the number, the smaller the hook! This is the opposite of the lettering system for yarn hooks, right? With those crochet hooks, a D is smaller than an E which is smaller than an F and so on. But with thread hooks, a 9 is larger than a 10, not smaller.

This can be a bit confusing at first, but most steel crochet hooks are also marked with an mm size, which will make it clear which hook is smaller. For example, a size 9 hook is typically mm while a size 10 is mm; you can see that the 10 is smaller than the 9. So, when choosing a crochet hook for your thread, you want to choose higher numbers (meaning smaller hooks) for higher thread sizes (which are thinner). The crochet hook size and thread size match each other in this way.

Okay, so now that you understand that, what are the right size hooks for your thread? Here's a good starting point:

  • Size 10 thread works well with a crochet hook sized 7 or 8
  • Size 20 thread works well with a crochet hook sized 9 or 10
  • Size 30 thread works well with a crochet hook sized 10, 11 or 12
  • Size 40 thread works well with a crochet hook sized 11, 12 or 13
  • Size 60 thread works well with a crochet hook sized 12 or 13
  • Sized 80 thread works well with a crochet hook sized 13 or 14
  • Sized thread works well with a crochet hook sized 14

If you are working from a thread crochet pattern, you can start with the hook recommended by the designer, but adjust as needed to get the right gauge. Now you have the knowledge that you need to change the hook/thread size if necessary!

Crochet Thread Basics with Aunt Lydia's
Here's how I explain the thread weights in my crochet jewelry patterns, in order of thick thread to thin, with US, UK and AUS terms:
Irish Pearl Cords L to R: Size #5 Lanaknits Hemp,
Size #10 Cebelia, and Size #20 Opera threads.

Size #3 crochet thread is fairly equivalent in thickness to CYCA #2 Fine or US "sport weight" yarns {UK Light DK, AUS 5 Ply}; however, yarns don't necessarily behave like a cotton crochet thread of the same thickness. Jewelry patterns often require crochet thread because of its smooth, finely twisted and plied mercerized cotton, usually &#;z-twisted.&#;

Size #5 crochet thread is fairly equivalent in thickness to CYCA #1 Super Fine or US "fingering weight' yarn {UK & AUS 3 Ply or 4 Ply}; however, not all yarns behave like a cotton crochet thread of the same thickness, so substitutions may not work well. Six-strand cotton embroidery floss falls in this size range when crocheted with all 6 strands together.

Size #10 crochet thread: some thread crocheters call this popular size &#;bedspread weight.&#; It's lumped together with thinner thread sizes in the yarn industry&#;s catch-all &#;lace weight&#; category: CYCA #0 Lace weight yarn {UK & AUS ??}; and most lace weight yarns don&#;t behave like a cotton crochet thread of the same thickness. Most of my thread crochet jewelryis designed for use with smooth, finely twisted and plied mercerized cotton, preferably &#;z-twisted&#; (i.e. has a counterclockwise twist).

Size #20 crochet thread: As with Size #10 & #30 crochet threads, equivalent yarn weight names are not helpful with these extra fine threads. For the best looking and lasting crochet jewelry, use a &#;6-cord&#; thread, sometimes called "cordonnet." It has recently become easier to find in more colors than the traditional white and ecru.

Size #30 crochet thread: As with Size #10 & #20 threads, equivalent yarn weight names are not helpful with these extra fine threads. For the best looking and lasting crochet jewelry, use a &#;6-cord&#; thread, although it's difficult to find it in modern colors.

Palmetto Cuffs crocheted of yarns spanning the light sport to
aran (heavy worsted) weight categories.
The yarn of the smallest cuff is equivalent to the thickest thread size #3!
