Conversion charts give the relationship of one thing to another.  They can be very useful and you can chart all sorts of things.  You can chart –

  • inches to centimetres
  • centimetres to inches
  • ounces to grams
  • grams to ounces
  • ball weights
  • stitches and rows to centimetres
  • types of crochet hooks
  • types of knitting needles

This is a metric conversion chart.  It converts inches to centimetres.

This is a chart to convert stitches or rows to centimetres using a tension square.  For example, using the chart, if your tension square has 22 stitches, then to knit a piece size 40 cm, you will need 88 stitches.  If your tension square has 28 rows, then to knit a piece size 40 cm, you will need 112 rows.   So, if your tension square is 22 stitches and 28 rows to 10 cm, then to create a knitted piece of 40 cm square, you will cast on 88 stitches, and knit 112 rows.
