How many yards of yarn do I need for a wrap?

WPI to YPP chart: wildly inaccurate

Yarn Category Wraps per Inch (WPI) Yards per Pound (YPP)

Worsted 12 900-1200

How do I figure out 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 you figure out yardage for crochet?

To begin, multiply your yardage by 36 to get the length in inches. So, if I have 110 yards, that’s 3960 inches. Divide this number by your inch/stitch measurement (that you got in step 2), which for single crochet with a worsted weight is 1.8″. 3960/1.8 is 2200 single crochets!
