MORE ABOUT CONVERSION CHARTS

The above presented tables list sizes based on my own collection of knitting needles and crochet hooks; you may have tools with different sizing specified, depending on who made them and for which market, i.e. America, Europe, Asia.

The numbers in the Polish size columns are provided in millimeters so are useful for anybody who measures their tools using metric system.

The crochet hooks table does not cover the C.F.I hooks sizing.

Some of the sizes may differ between manufacturers, so it might be that there is no exact match in a row in these tables, e.g. you may have a crochet hook size 13 mm not 12,75 mm or your knitting needles’ package might read 14 mm / US 19, which would refer to two different sizes in the above table.

Also please bare in mind that hand- made tools are never identical and might have slight differences in circumference…well because they are hand made not machine made.
