  • The hook size is shown as 7 (4.5) mm. So, in US terms is this a size 7 steel hook? Or, is it a 4.5 mm which would be in the neighborhood of a J, if my thoughts are right? I am not clear on the suggested hook size.

  • Thanks for the free patterns you are posting for the 25 Days of Christmas 2016…. If I don’t have time to do them this Christmas Season it will give me good start for next year….plus allow me to make my purchases through out the year. Love shopping with Mary Maxim.
