Fingering weight yarns knit at a gauge of 27 to 32 stitches (21 to 32 single crochet) per 4 inches
Fingering yarns are sometimes called sock yarns, although true sock yarns have other characteristics that make them excellent for socks, including a nice tight twist and the addition of nylon or other fibers to add strength and durability.
Knitters often work fingering weight yarns on a larger needle for shawls and sweaters.
Yarns with a knitted gauge of 33 to 40 stitches (32 to 42 single crochet) per 4 inches. Most of these yarns are knitted on a larger needle to create an open lacy fabric, so gauge can be difficult to identify.
This gauge of yarn is often knit using two strands, or carried with other yarns for an interesting texture and fabric.
