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.

Things You'll Need Crochet gauge measureCrochet hookKnitting patternYarn (allot 30 percent more yarn when converting a knit pattern to a crochet pattern) Experiment with gauge to determine what size crochet hook and yarn will give you the same number of stitches per inch as the knitting pattern requires. Repeatedly check that your project is the correct size, especially if you are crocheting clothing. Free Pattern Friday Crochet: Flower Scarf.

My fierce but friendly really Dragon - with pattern! 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. You can download a PDF of it at the bottom of this post: or at Ravelry: I'm going to assume that anyone who tries to make this has a reasonable knowledge of crochet & making amigurumi, and that you know how to increase and decrease.

Start at the dragon’s nose: You make the spikes continuously.

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.

Sure, you’ve got your child, teen, and adult sizes – but there are also more than a dozen specifically geared for preemies, newborns, and babies of various ages.

Medallion Crochet Afghan | This beautiful throw looks woven but is actually crocheted in afghan stitch, using an afghan hook, which looks like a long crochet hook with a knob on the end to prevent the stitches from slipping off.
