crochet hook equivalent

sveech's picture

i've recently tried an easy garter stitch scarf changing colours every 20 rows - the scarf looks great - the changes look like hammered cat poop - am planning on crocheting a border around to hide them, but not sure what size hook to use - where do i find knitting needle/crochet hook equivalents? i used size 10 us needles...and is there a better way of doing colour changes other than just tying on and going for it? any input is appreciated - thanks

as always

Have fun! I am eventually

Have fun! I am eventually going to work in ends on the latest afghan...I dread it but am working on ways to make it more enjoyable. Maybe a long immersion in favorite music CDs. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

To find the equivalent

To find the equivalent crochet hook, you need to go by the metric designation. US10 needles are (usually) 6.0mm. That would be (usually) a J crochet hook. To get your border to lay flat, you may have to use a smaller hook (size I or possibly even H). I led a workshop on corcheted borders at the MSKR '09, and that's what I discovered in preparing for it (and in doing the 7700-stitch crochet border on our joint blanket!). Good luck!
