Description
How much yarn do you need? This leaflet contains specific yarn yardage requirements for eight of the most popular crocheted items-caps, scarves, ponchos, skirts, bags, afghans, sleeveless tops, and baby sweaters. The yardages given here are for working these projects in various sizes with five standard yarn weights, ranging from fingering to bulky. Keep this leaflet in your crochet bag and use it as a reference for all of your basic patterns-no longer will you need to guess how much yarn to purchase for a blanket to fit a crib, a cap to fit your uncle, a summer top to fit your best friend, or a large tote to hold your current project, no matter what size yarn you want to use.

I never know how much yarn to purchase when I have a project in mind. This pamphlet is sturdy and small enough to carry along when shopping. I'm guessing it may pay for itself many times over in yarn overages avoided.
