Knitting Needle Conversion Chart

- 2

It's been ages since I've updated the blog, so I thought I'd ease back into it with a lazy post - a knitting needle conversion chart.

I've been planning to add some handy charts and tutorials to the blog for ages, and this seemed like a good way to start. While it's not an exciting blog post, it will add a useful tool to the "tutorial" page.

I've only ever thought about knitting needles in terms of their metric sizes, so I get lost as soon as UK or US sizes are mentioned in a pattern. I don't plan on memorizing the different sizes, but now I know exactly where to go for a reference table.

      Good question! I’ll put together a table of how to estimate how much you need for a cast on, cast off and full row. I’ll try to get this out next week.
