Needle & Hook Sizes

hiyahiya knitting needle gauge

Our useful needle size chart compares US, metric, and UK sizes for knitting needle and crochet hooks.

Do you have a needle gauge?  Needle gauges with US and metric sizes are handy for determining needle and hook sizes.  Just slip the needle or hook into the holes -- the smallest hole it fits into is its size.
