Dear Crochet Maker,

When I began to crochet some years ago, I used to get so confused trying to figure out what all the yarn sizes meant. And I never felt like I knew which hook to use when I wanted to make something. Even today, I sometimes come across a vintage yarn that isn’t very well labeled, and I have to do a little math in my head to determine which hook to use and what I might create with it.

I don’t know about you, but some days I feel like I have about ten million squirrels running around in my brain. Those are not the days when I need extra factoring to stand between me and my yarn!

If anything, those are the days when I especially love to crochet.

Crochet gives me an opportunity to slow things down and breathe. It’s a creative outlet that helps me focus, and it lets me give handmade gifts to friends and family. Bonus!

So, to make things easy, whether you’re a beginner or you have plenty of experience, but already have too many things on your mind, I put together a Printable Chart of Yarn and Hook Sizes. It’s really streamlined the process for me when I want to start a new project, and I’d like to share it with you.
