*Note: 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 skeins/balls/cones to purchase, divide the total yardage needed, as instructed in your pattern of the recommended yarn, by your substitute yarn's amount per skein/ball/cone. Be sure to round up to the nearest whole skein/ball/cone as well.
