How to Convert Knit Stitches to Crochet Stitches When you find a knitting pattern you really love, but you want to work it in crochet, you are faced with a challenge. Knit and crochet stitches are not exactly interchangeable and technically cannot be converted. Nevertheless, you can replace stitches to give the crochet pattern a similar look as the knit pattern if the pattern is not too complex. There may be some experimentation involved to get the desired look, but a few general guidelines will assist you in crocheting a simple end product that, although not identical, may strongly resemble the original pattern.

My fierce but friendly really Dragon - with pattern! - CROCHET My fierce but friendly really Dragon - with pattern! - CROCHET After I started re-crocheting a couple of years ago, one of the first things I wanted to make was a dragon. I did it, and was very happy with it, but I didn't write out the pattern in full. Since then I've had so many people, seeing the pictures of it on Flickr, ask if they could have the pattern, and now I've finally done it! I've made another dragon (slightly smaller this time, I crochet much tighter now!), worked out the pattern, and tried to put it down in a way that makes sense. *I have now written out the pattern in full.
5 Helpful Crochet Size Charts Sometimes the things we love to crochet aren't exactly one-size-fits-all. Luckily, there are lots of online resources that can help you size hats, gloves, and blankets to the right measurements – leaving you with finished pieces that are a perfect fit (or pretty close to one!). Especially if you’re making your own patterns, it’s helpful to have some guidelines so you know what sizes things need to be – e.g. the size of a child’s hat versus the size of an adult’s hat. When in doubt, here are a few charts and websites that can offer some help. Hat Sizing Chart, from Creating Beautiful Things in LifeThis isn’t just a sizing chart with a few measurements – it explains the formula for head circumference, how to fit hats, and 16 different size guidelines based on age.

Little Yarn Friends • Crochet Pattern: Lil' Agnes (Despicable Me)
For quite some time now we have been mesmerized and inspired by the work of the unsurpassable artist Margaret Oomen - we are particularly drawn to her crocheted stones. Her creations and her talent leave us absolutely speechless, as does her wonderfully kind personality. Resurrection Fern is her blog about her life as a mother of four, rural physician and textile designer. She also has an Etsy Shop where you can purchase her gorgeous crocheted stones (if you're quick enough since they go so quickly!) as well as beautiful still-life photographs of her crocheted stones. Today marks a very special day for us because Margaret generously agreed to create an exclusive Crocheted Stone pattern for Purl Bee readers (pictured above).
