Hello, here are some conversion charts that I hope you will find helpful. This chart is for Needles and Hooks: (http://www.knitting-crochet.com/found/conchafou.html) This one is for Yarn: (http://www.knitting-crochet.com/found/yarn.html) Both are from a nice site called the Yarn Lovers Room (http://www.knitting-crochet.com/index.html), happy knitting! :)

in answer to your question go to http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/index.php click on instruction and directory scroll to the bottom and you will find yarn and needle conversion charts then scroll down. the page will list all needle sizes for you. as for the Red Heart yarn it is a super bulky weight yarn which would substitute to a 14ply yarn. As for the needle size Us 10 is 6mm for Canadians (like me) or a 4 if your using the old UK sizes. I hope this was helpful.

Thanks for sharing this site. I find that since I see so many great projects on this site, it makes me eager to finish my UFO's (UnFinishedObjects) so I can continue starting new ones. Softball season is coming soon and I spend a lot of time at the field watching my husband of 41 years play. Perfect knitting time :)

It seems we are getting a lot of Brits on the Forum. Many of us would like to know of interesting UK sites for patterns. Their patterns are beautiful and usually different than the ones in the US. What do you say UKers will you put us in touch with some good sites?

Thanks,
Elaine

Most of the European sites and those from Japan have beautiful patterns, different then those from the USA. The ones from Japan (such as Pierrot Yarns) are mostly charted but they have a lot that are in English also. I came across many sites that were from Brazil, they too, are charted.

You are all very welcome and thank you.

There are lots more and I will post as I come across them. I love a lot of the American patterns and have all the conversion charts ready!! It's knowing when a stitch or term is different, not always easy to notice but, hey that's the challenge. The same will be said vise versa. :-D

have you tried knitty.com, knitsimple.com (UK magazine that I love here in Canada) or if you are a toy knitter and willing to pay a little try Alan Dart. He is amazing. Try Google type in UK knit patterns or something like that. Google is amazing. Hope that helps.
