A while ago, I was asked if I could calculate some yarn for someone and after I did, I came up with an idea. What if I asked knitters if there was something knit related that was a bit of a mystery. Something people wanted a guide to or if I could help with a knitting problem…..
One of the most popular responses was the question “How do I calculate yarn?” So I thought it would be a good idea to make it into a guide, a free guide.
There are so many knitters who need to adapt patterns, sizing for example or those who design patterns and the problem was that all of the other ones on the web seemed really complicated. So I’ve put together a really simple step by step guide that takes you through the entire process. The tension swatch, the design of the pattern and even a couple of methods of calculation that gives you a basic estimate right through to a detailed part for those who want precise measurements.
Now I can’t pretend that the process is a really quick one, you so have to knit a swatch and look through your pattern if it’s an existing one, but it is simple.
So if you need to calculate the amount of yarn you need for a project , designed something or want to know how much you need for a specific size, you can download this guide below.
