## How do I figure out how much yarn I need?

Formula: **(length x width x gauge) / 6 = yards needed**. Length and width are in inches and gauge is in stitches per inch. For example, if you’d like a scarf 48″ long and 8″ wide using a worsted weight yarn, (48 x 8 x 5) / 6 = 320 yards. Round up as running out of yarn is the worst!

## How do you figure out yardage for crochet?

To begin, **multiply your yardage by 36 to get the length in inches**. So, if I have 110 yards, that’s 3960 inches. Divide this number by your inch/stitch measurement (that you got in step 2), which for single crochet with a worsted weight is 1.8″. 3960/1.8 is 2200 single crochets!
