Crochet size charts are a handy things to have whether you are a beginner or experienced crocheter. In this blog post, I’ll be sharing with you some of the crochet size charts you’ve got to have in your possession. The charts provided here are just a summary. For the detailed crochet size charts, download the free eBook- My Handy Crochet Guide- over at the Resources Library

1. Crochet abbreviations chart

Although not technically a crochet size chart, crochet abbreviations are the back bone of crochet. Whether you’re diving into a new pattern or writing your own, it’s always helpful to have some of the most common crocheting abbreviations handy. Generally, abbreviations are given at the beginning of a book or pattern. However, it’s always good to familiarize yourself with terms used in crochet.

2. Crochet US/ UK conversions chart.

I’ve been crocheting for a really long time. When I started exploring with crochet patterns, imagine my confusion when I realized that  US and UK basic stitches, although the same, are called different names. That means there’s one set of basic stitches worldwide but there are two sets of names for them. You will want to know whether a pattern uses US or UK terms before starting it, and having this chart won’t hurt either.
