When you're creating a knitted or crochet item without a pattern, it is hard to determine how much yarn you will need to make. Take a look at our handy chart below for assistance!
Please note that amounts are only approximate, based on average size projects, and will vary depending on type of stitch, gauge and differences in individual knitters and crocheters.
To find out how many balls or skeins to purchase, divide the total yardage suggested below by the number of yards per ball or skein in your chosen yarn. This information can be found for each of the yarn's on our website in the Product Details, and is usually printed on the ball-band too. Be sure to round up to the nearest whole ball or skein as well.
This handy chart should help you estimate for most items, but if you need any more advice please do contact us.
