How do I calculate how much yarn I need?
Formula: (length x width x gauge) / 6 = yards needed. Length and width are in inches and gauge is in stitches per inch. For example, if you’d like a scarf 48″ long and 8″ wide using a worsted weight yarn, (48 x 8 x 5) / 6 = 320 yards. Round up as running out of yarn is the worst!
