I was never a fan of a hard-copy-yarn-craft-journal. As a Techno Nerd, I always thought Ravelry was the only way to go. But then I was contacted to review this one.
Yep. It’s worth a look. AND I began to think of other benefits… like passing it down to another knitter in the family! Hmmm…. What do YOU think?

The majority of my knit and crochet hats are done for charity, therefore, I don’t have a way to measure the heads that will wear them. Sooo… my secret is to keep sizing charts handy!
Download my Hat Sizing Charts! You’ll find 2 charts included in the download… one for crochet and one for knitting. Keep it handy in your phone or print it for your yarn bag!
Crochet is simple to size and the same chart can be use with any gauge, yarn weight or hook size.
The Knitting Chart will include cast-on numbers. This is great when you have a open skein of yarn and no plan or pattern in mind! After a quick glance at the cast-on numbers, I can knit a simple, basic beanie without having to go on a pattern hunt! (IMHO, this is perfect when the yarn needs to do the shining. I like solid colors for cables and fancy stitches.)
And there’s now a THIRD chart added to help you avoid the harrowing game of Yarn Chicken! I’ve shared my tricks for determining yarn length for 1 row in crochet, knitting and circular machine knitting, too!
