Some handy printable knitting and size conversion charts.
Knitting Needle Sizes
Knitting needles are often handed down through generations, which in the UK can lead to some confusing sizing between the old Imperial and more recent Metric measurements.
Add into the mix a completely opposite sizing practice used in the US and the unique measurements of Japanese knitting needles and you have a recipe for disaster before you even cast a stitch on.
Many old knitting patterns are still in wide circulation and with the ability to download patterns via the internet, it is important to be able to convert accurately and easily.
We have created one of the most comprehensive knitting needle size conversion charts which you can download in PDF format.
