Conversions

Today I had a comment on my Rosy Cotton Top from Sal, who wished that I had the measurements in American standard as well as metric. So here are the conversions are as they appear in my book.

Metric / Imperial Measurements
Length
100 centimetres (cm) = 1 meter (m)
36 inches (“) = 1 yard (yd)

To convert:
Centimetres to inches – multiply by 0.3937
Inches to centimetres – multiply by 2.54
Metres to yards – multiply by 1.0936
Yards to metres – multiply by 0.9144

Weight
1 gram (g) = 0.0353 ounces (oz)
50 grams = 1¾ ounces
100 grams = 3½ onces
1 ounce (oz) = 28.35 grams (g)
4 ounces = 114 grams

I've also added a universal converter to my blog - find it in the right hand column.
Thank you Sal for your comment, I'm sure these will be of help to everyone.

Happy Knitting!
