Yarnish Tutorials: Life's a stitch with this handy-dandy conversion chart <3

Posted by Reneé Ettia on

Hello Yarnies <3

A little while ago, I wrote that I would be adding a new 'blog topic' to our series of posts: 'Yarnish Tutorials'! 

Our first post was super successful! You seemed to have liked it very much! I developed a yarn weight chart and you can find it here

This time, I'm going back to 'Crochet-Kindergarten' and revising my crochet UK to US stitches!

Welcome to our second Yarnish Tutorials post :) 

Tell me, what do you prefer: UK stitch charts or US? 

I learnt to crochet from an American crochet book, so I'm US terms all the way! But no matter how much I feel I have a handle on UK stitches, my mind slips back to US, sometimes during the middle of a round. 

There is nothing worse than the sudden realisation you have been crocheting in the wrong 'conglomerate crochet region' for half your project.... I know I'm not the only one who has experienced this (∩︵∩) I feel this is definitely a 'crochet-basics' topic: the 'crochet common-knowledge' equivalent of knowing your 7 times tables off-by-heart or recalling that John Curtin was our 14th Prime Minister in Australia (I actually had to look that up....).

But I digress! Through all my ramblings, the point I'm trying to make is that knowing your stitch conversions should be information we recall instantly....but this never happens! I blame it on the fact that when we crochet, we have enough to think about, right?!

So, to help you and to help me, I developed a easy-to-read Crochet Stitch Conversion Chart! Save it to your device and use it at your every whim. Enjoy <3

I hope this helps you. I am going to print it out and stick it in my WIP bag! 

Happy Yarning <3

  • I’m UK all the way, it’s how I learned! Plus I work with a lot of elderly people who all learned the UK version, they get very confused when I have to explain the pettern in UK terms, I’ve rewritten more than one from US to UK before so this could be really useful for me!!
