Hi everyone. So in the book 24-Hour Crochet Projects, there's a doily project that calls for bedspread-weight crochet thread.  It doesn't give an example of a brand used, and I have no idea what bedspread-weight means. Does anyone know? I don't know if I want to make the doilies or not. I'm just annoyed that there's information in a book that I can't figure out. Someone please appease my obsessive need to be all-knowing!

Try this link, it has some photos of what you are looking for.  Crocheting with this thread takes a lot of time and patience but in the end its definately worth it.  You will probably be working with small steel hooks which go by numbers instead of letters.


Hope this helps.

Those links were dead for me... so I'll post a quick answer for anyone else who stumbles by.

Bedspread weight crochet thread almost always refers to size 10 crochet thread.  This comes in a number of brands and colors... an easy website to check out brands is http://www.herrschners.com/

So, remember: bedspread weight = size 10.
Size 20 is half that size.
Size 30 is 1/3 that size.
Size 100 is 1/10 the size of 10 (like sewing thread!).
Size 5 crochet thread is twice the thickness of size 5.
And so on.  Larger numbers mean thinner thread with crochet thread.

Also, use 100% MERCERIZED cotton only. Smiley
