Crochet Stitch Information






UK /USA Crochet Hook Sizes

Below is a list of UK - USA standard crochet stitch conversions and a list of  UK abbreviations, used in my patterns.


Scroll down to the bottom of the page for crochet hook comparison charts.  The metric size hooks (written in red), are the type used in UK modern day patterns.

If you are using a vintage pattern you may find it quotes UK imperial size hooks, (written in grey).


I have also included USA equivalent sizes (written in blue).
