I refer to this chart A LOT! You’ll hear me mention it in videos; you’ll see it included in some of my patterns and I often refer to it when I’m working on a hat! The actual info in the chart came from a blog called Slugs on the Refrigerator but it’s not available in its original form. (Looks like the website was redesigned and the chart lost it’s formatting.) Just for convenience, I put it back into an easy-to-read table below.
