Crochet Bind Off! EDIT>SEE LAST COMMENT FOR QUESTION
 
So I only have like 1 crochet hook and it's like a D or an E. So could I use this on all of my projects or would I need to get the size that corresponds with the size needle I am using? :??

Generally you want to stay about the same size or slightly larger than your needle size. Too small and the bind off is too tight, etc..

Well what size crochet hook minimum would work with size 10 needles? :shrug:

I think the mm size on 10.5 is 6.5mm, so look for a hook around that size. What is that, like a K?

so basically you compare the "mm" measurements... right?

yep. number sizes and letters can be unpredictable, but the mm tells you the actual size so you know what you're getting.

I remember watching a KG show one time, and the guest (maybe Lily Chin??) suggested an easy way to remember. Start with crochet needle size "H." "H" sounds like "8," so correspond the "H" to size 8 knitting needle. As you go down through the alphabet, the knitting needle numbers get smaller, and they go up as you go higher in the alphabet.

Look at this site. The chart is very helpful.

Here's a great site to figure out the sizes;

Lily Chin on Knitty Gritty said an easy way to remember is an H hook is comparable to an 8 needle. "H" & "8" kinda rhyme. You can count up or down from there: D-4 E-5 F-6 G-7 H-8 I-9 J-10 K-11.

Is the single crochet bindoff loose? well... looser than basic knit bindoff? :shrug:
