What does the weight of yarn mean and why does it matter?

The weight of yarn refers to the diameter of the yarn, which determines what size knitting needles or crochet hook will be required to obtain the right gauge for that particular weight of yarn. Knitting and crochet projects usually specify the weight of the yarn and the size of the needle or hook in reference to the project's gauge.
