## 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!

## How do I know if I have enough yarn for another row in crochet?

## How much yarn should you leave to cast off?

To be on a save side, you’ll need 5 times as much yarn for the bind off as your project is wide. This will leave a little tail of maybe 3-4 inches for weaving in the tails as well. (The exact factor was 4.6 for my swatch. It was 12 cm wide and i needed 56 cm for the cast-off.)

## How much yarn do I need for a row of knitting?

My rule of thumb is to leave 3 times the amount of yarn needed for a row for a regular bind off. JSSBO, I’ll go 4 times or more. So if you used 3.5 yards for a pair of rows, you will need 1.75 yards (half) times 3 or 5.25 yards or 7 yards if you need 4 times.
