Handy Chart for Fiber Artists

If you’re like me and like to knit and crochet and you aren’t afraid to combine both skills in the same project…here’s a handy chart to help you select the appropriate size needles and hooks. In other words, if I am knitting with No. 7 knitting needles and want to put a crocheted edging on my project, following this chart I would get the best results from a G crochet hook.
