Master List of Crochet Hook Sizes

Crochet hook sizes matter. New crocheters may not even clue in there is a difference until they are staring at a yarn aisle and seeing all the different sizes.

Hook sizes I recommend when making a purchase for the first time. Look for 5 mm, 5.5 mm, 6 mm or 6.5 mm. For our USA friends, that size H, I, J and K.

If you are ever unsure, look at the ball band and it gives a recommendation for the hook size needed.

Sizes indicated in the following order. Metric, USA, UK

  • 2 mm,  n/a, 14
  • 2.25 mm, B/1, 13

    My Clover Amour hooks have a G on them for the 4mm size. Also the UK has been on metric sizing since they joined the EU.

    What about size M? I have a pattern calling for size M or 13mm

      Size M is 9.0 needle and size 13 is 0.85 needle

    I have some sizes that aren’t listed. 5.25, 5.75 just to mention a couple as well as some steel hooks that aren’t on any list I’ve seen.
