  1. Metric sizing is the only consistent global sizing and is always given in patterns whatever country the author is from. Metric sizing is an advantage on any hook allowing you to do the greatest number of projects with it. Many Americans in my crochet group reply on the metric sizes if there are discrepancies.
    I think a general observation that a conversion chart may be handy would be more appropriate than the con labelling.
