How to Convert a Crochet Pattern to a Knitting Pattern


When converting your crochet pattern to a knitting pattern, remember to measure the gauge before you begin so the finished project will be the correct size or shape.

Things You'll Need

  • Knitting Gauge Rulers
  • Knitting Patterns
  • Crochet Thread
  • Knitting Needles
  • Pencils
  • Use a pair of knitting needles to make a gauged sample. Convert your crochet pattern to a knitting pattern by substituting the stitches listed in the following steps.

  • Change the size of needles, if necessary, to achieve the size of gauge needed to complete the pattern.

  • Pencil in the knitting stitches above the crochet stitches. Make a copy of your pattern if you do not wish to write on the original.

  • Cast yarn onto the needles in place of the beginning crochet chain stitch. You will need to use your gauge to get the correct number of stitches.

  • Convert one row of single crochet to one row of knit and one row of purl (k1, p1); or two rows of knit; or two rows of garter stitch.

  • Substitute three rows of knitting (or knit one row, purl one row, then knit one row - k1, p1, k1) for one row of half-double crochet.

  • Knit a row of each (k1, p1, k1, p1) for a total of four rows to replace one row of double crochet.

  • Change one row of treble crochet into six rows of stockinette (or knit one row, purl one row, knit one row, purl one row, knit one row, purl one row - k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1).

  • Periodically check the gauge to make sure you are staying in the correct measurement.

Tips & Warnings

  • Knitting will change the texture and look of your project.
