I usually knit, but I have something that I'd like toc rochet, and I know the basic stitches.

The pattern calls for a size H hook, but is from Europe - so I'm not familiar with the type of yarn.

What size yarn would you use to go with a Size H hook?

Thanks!

An H is consistent with a 5.0mm hook, which I've used comfortably with worsted weight yarn. Bulky barely fits on a 5.5mm for me.

Good luck with your project Cheesy
