Is needle size the same as crochet hook size?

Does using a bigger crochet hook use less yarn?

What happens when you use the wrong size crochet hook?

The hook that you choose, combined with the yarn and your tension, will impact the gauge of the piece. This, in turn, gives you the finished project size. If you choose the wrong crochet hook, you might end up with a sweater that is much smaller or larger than intended.
