We ALL have loved a yarn that is written in a foreign language. The knitting style may be our own, but at some point we have to make sure we are getting our gauge and that we can compare what we are getting to what is on that darn label.
So here we go. This is the English Translation for the below image. You can use this for German yarns as well.
100 GRAM = approx. 4 oz.
150 meters = approx. 164 yards
Ull = Wool (Bomull = Cotton, the other ull)
Nr. 4 1/2 – 5 (mm – note that is missing) = US 7 – 8
29 m = 30 cm….st.nr 4 1/2 means roughly 4 to 5 stitches per inch on a size 7.
