Yarn Yardage Requirements
While we would like to offer a simple yarn estimate in our custom patterns, however, the amount of yarn you will need will depend on choices you make like whether to make the garment a cropped or tunic length. We've anticipated that, and we have created charts that allow you to estimate yarn needed based on your choice of weight as well as length. Please refer to our yarn estimation charts and read the article for helpful hints on how to estimate the amount of yarn you will need.
