hi there , i am crocheting a care bear and the pattern is from america. Part of it says to use size 10 crochet thread (bedspread weight). can anyone advise me if this is just the same as say anchor size 10 thread?
thanks, Jackie

Size 10 threads are all the sme weight and should give the same gauge with the needle size given. That said, the crocheter's personal tension has to be considered, too.
Can't wait to see your finished Care Bear!

oh oh oh I'm working with size 10 Lydia brand right now. I love it, slides so nice when I'm hooking.
I'm useing a sz 7 US hook and am makeing a Queen Anns lace pattern.
Its supose to be a table runner but its going so smoothly I might just keep going and make it into a bed spread. You hook tham as you go so its really fast. I did 6 full flowers in 1 hr. So I can watch tv and do them I'm going to just keep going .
I have a new first time Great grand baby comming in March so I'll have to work baby things inbetween, that will help break up the munotteny of hooking.
Omg I'm going to be a gr grandma.I'm 57 yrs old. AWAWA

Yes, great thread but most of all, congrats on becoming a grandma. I have this plaque on the frig that says "if I would have known grandchildren would have been so great, I would have had them first!"

Do you know the sex yet? This helps with knit/crochet colors.

Thats a smart idea.. even over the decades the terms change. It can be confusing but look at all we are learning that our poor teachers couldn't get across to us...
