If you like to be a little creative with projects it helps to know what weight yarns equal to what plys and what knitting needles and crochet hooks can be used with what, so we have created this handy chart to help you chose the right fit every time. So, whether you're comparing UK yarn terms to US yarn terms or looking for a guide on what crochet hook size is suitable for a 4-ply yarn, simply refer to the table below. In this case, use the table below to convert old needle sizes to the new system. For reference, “dpn” stands for “double-pointed needles”. Metric Size (mm) Whether your needles are single pointed, double pointed, or circular knitting needles, they all use the same size chart. Knitting Needle Size Conversion Chart Also the length of a needle is important, it is easier to handle a shorter needle such as 25-30 cm long. The length of your knitting needles might not be important for straight needles, but it is very important when it comes to knitting in the round with circular needles.

Knitting needles are usually measured by their diameter (the width of the circle), but some countries assign this measurement a random number, and some measure it in millimeters.Unlike Swiss cheese, these holes are precisely sized for measuring knitting needles! This is a standard plastic gauge for measuring knitting needle sizes. Note: Once you get past this size, there stops being even numbers in US sizing. Don’t bother looking for size 16 or 14, for example, because they don’t exist! US Size 17 and Bigger Circular needles are two needles connected by a long, flexible cable. This cable allows you to knit in a tubular shape, and is designed to support the weight of your stitches when knitting in the round. The longer the cable, the more stitches you can support.

It would be very limited to assume the U.S. only imported haberdashery from the UK. After all, companies like addi have been selling fine knitting needles since 1829! In short, the length of the needles you use makes absolutely no difference to the size of your stitches or the final outcome of the item you’re knitting. However, it can make a difference to how comfortable you are whilst you complete your project. I hope this is helpful for you, and feel free to share this with friends who may benefit from this resource.

US Size 9-11 These are designed for lace or projects with intricate designs, used with very fine yarn. They’re also quite challenging to get your hands on because they’re used for particular tasks. US Size 1-3 Our wooden knitting needles consist of high quality birch wood. Birch wood is first of all a very strong material, which has made it possible to shape the tips as fine and sharp as possible. This makes it easier for you to get all the stitches when you knit. As an added bonus, knitting needles of birch are comfortable to knit with. They fit perfect in your hands and then they are almost silent. These are the smallest ones you can find. Probably best to avoid these if you’re a beginner, get hand pain, or don’t have the patience! On top of that, different materials (e.g. wool, alpaca, or cotton) are also an important factor. Some of these might change their appearance drastically after the first wash.

Medium sizes are generally the best for beginners. This means you should look for a width size of six (4mm), seven (4.5mm), or eight (5mm).

This can be a matter of personal opinion, but before you buy a lovely full set of needles, it is important to try different materials.Now, you might be wondering about the difference between knitting needle sizes? Why are there so many and which size should you use? What’s the difference?
