Yardage Guide

Knitting & Crochet Yardage Estimates

  • Take note that these are estimates. You should follow what your patterns and yarn labels suggest.
  • These estimates are for stockinette and single crochet patterns. Allow for a 10% difference with other stitch patterns.
  • As a general rule, crochet uses 20% - 30% more yarn than knitting.
  • Always try to buy all of the yarn you need in one purchase. Even large company yarns and colors can change from batch to batch. Dye lots matter!
