Tip 372: How Many Centimeters in One Yard?By DianeSev on 7/27/12 10:11 AM

I recently discovered that Google has a super-simple way of finding measurement equivalents.

Let's say you're reading a European pattern that says it's for someone with a hip measurement of 92 cm. "What the heck does that mean--it sound HUGE," you say to yourself.

Well, in the Google search bar, just type "92 cm to inches", and you'll learn that 92 centimeters=36.2204724 inches: just under 36 1/4". Definitely not huge. Smile This work the other way too, of course--imperial to metric.

Cool, eh? Smile
