If you're a knitter, you know that sometimes you need to convert inches to centimeters or vice versa. Knitting conversions aren't hard to do, you just need to brush off your math skills. Here are a couple of tips to help you convert both centimeters and inches:

  • To convert centimeters to inches, divide the centimeter figure by 2.5; for example, 10 centimeters divided by 2.5 equals 4 inches.

  • To convert inches to centimeters, multiply the inch figure by 2.5; for example, 4 inches times 2.5 equals 10 centimeters.
