How much yarn do I need to knit a sweater/scarf/hat/cushion?
This is a question we get asked a lot! While we usually try to answer as best as we can, there the answer is: we don’t know! Well, not for certainty, a sweater for example could take anywhere from 500g to 1200g, depending on the size and intricacy of pattern. A plain knit sweater for a petite woman is going to take a lot less than a very patterned, say Aran pattern for a 6’ 6” man! Your knitting pattern should state the amount needed, and ideally you should have a pattern, unless you are an expert knitter. In that case you would probably have a good idea how much you will need!
