How do you know what size your safety eyes are?

Hi,

Usually I buy the ones already had labels with the sizes but if not from where I bought compare between what in my hand and the photos had sizes and wrote it over on the bag or box I put them in. Or just try it on the Amugurumi am working on untill find the suitable ones and continue without problem. :green_heart: even sometimes the pattern mentioned a size but I preferred another one depend on my work and how I want it to look at the end :ok_hand::grin::+1::green_heart::green_heart::green_heart::green_heart::green_heart::green_heart:

I don’t use safety eyes, because they are not safe for kids under 3. (not safe is the operative word here.) But, pretty sure you can measure them. 12 mm safety eye is … 12 mm …

I google to find more info, 12 mm is .4724409 inches

Sorry to hear that, yeah most of them not, there’s another way but I didn’t try it as when I did not get what I want and confused me more :sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile: use a gauge or knitting ruller to size the knitting needle can be used to measure the safety eye (this information read it on other topics of one of designer, not remember where :green_heart::sweat_smile: thank for her).

If you are buying online it should say… if you are looking for what to use for a pattern the pattern usually should say what size to use, And if you acsedently mixed your eyes together i would use a ruler if i were you are just hold them side by side :slight_smile:
