## Do I have enough yarn left?

The standard advice on whether you have enough yarn to complete one more row is to stretch out your knitting and, if the length of yarn is 4 times the width of your work, you should have enough.

## Do I have enough yarn for another row crochet?

Find the half way point in your remaining yarn (or further towards the working end if rows are increasing). Tie a small removable knot at about that point. If you finish your row/repeat before you get to the knot then you know you can have another row/repeat.

## What does 50g mean in yarn?

50g stands for “50 grams”. This refers to how heavy the yarn is. 50 grams of yarn is equivalent to approximately 1.76 ounces of yarn. So if you have 2 x 50 gram balls it is equivalent to a 100-gram ball of yarn.

## How long is 100g yarn?

600-1000m per 100g = Lace (600m being a ‘heavy’ laceweight) 375-550m per 100g = Fingering (550 being ‘light’ fingering)

## How many balls are in a skein of yarn?

100 grams of yard is equal to 250 yards. There are approximately 236 yards in 1 skein of yarn. You’ll need to buy the 100 gram balls to do the project if you are working with a skein of yarn. Otherwise, it will be 2 50 gram balls of yard for each skein of yard you’ll need to buy.

## 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 does it take to bind off?

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.

## How do I calculate how much yarn I need?

Number of skeins called for in the pattern × yards per skein = total yards needed for the pattern. Total yards needed for the pattern ÷ yards per skein of your chosen yarn = number of skeins you need (round up to the nearest whole number, if necessary)
