I'm only bumping this ancient thread to post this: http://www.lionbrand.../faq/97.html
F hook = Bone Crochet Hook Size 5,G-6
G hook = Bone Crochet Hook Size 6, and so on. Tracy4610 was correct, but in case anyone wants LionBrand's site with the whole list there it is. Reason I post this here is that I was doing a web search for crochet hook conversions to newer hook sizes, and this old post was in one of the first hits. Anyway, hope this might help another person some day

Here is another link with a little more of a breakout for the bone hook sizes (thanks to Magiccrochetfan for posting this on another thread recently, I had only ever wandered around the catalog before; warning, don't look at the catalog unless you have a few hours to kill )

That's a better one. I love that site for all of the antique patterns too! I imagine all those women in history spending weeks making some of the doilies on there- no wonder clothing was one of the most stolen items back then. It took weeks just to complete a cuff.
