If you are a crochet and/or knit designer, you’ve probably had to list measurements in both inches and centimeters. The standard in the industry is to round inches to the nearest 1/4 inch (.25, .5, .75) and centimeters to the nearest .5

That’s not such a big deal with basic patterns, but once you get into garments or anything with more than 2 measurements, it can turn into a real headache. I developed this chart to help me be accurate and efficient when working with all those numbers.

This two page chart has columns of measurements. For each inch measurement, it shows the corresponding centimeter measurement already rounded to the nearest .5 for you. The chart goes from .25 inches (.5 cm) to 117 inches (297 cm). I recommend that you print it double sided on cardstock for durability, because you’ll be using this chart a lot! I put my chart inside a page protector sleeve.
