Alana Dakos, the bestselling author of Baby Botanicals and Botanical Knits, has written a useful and practical booklet for any knitter who has ever been tempted to buy yarn without a precise project in mind.
Whether it is an amazing sale bargain, a-never-to-be-repeated artisan yarn, or simply a beautiful wool that you have fallen in love with. Using Stashbot, you can find yarn requirement averages for gauges from 3 - 8 stitches per inch (2.5cm) – which is approximately chunky/bulky weight to 4 ply/fingering weight - though this will vary from yarn to yarn. All measurements are given in imperial and metric measurements, so inches/cm and yards/metres are both listed. Stashbot includes average yarn estimates for cropped, standard and tunic length sweaters in sizes from chest 23" (58½cm) (to fit a 3 month infant) to bust 60” (152cm); hats, socks, and mittens for babies, toddlers, children, adults and XL adults; and scarves and cowls in three average dimensions.
An invaluable yarn shopping companion which will help you make the most of unexpected purchases and ensure that you feel fully justified in adding to your carefully curated (and sure-to-be-used) stash.
Please note that this is an American publication, and total yardage (meterage) requirements are given, so you will need to know the length of an individual ball of yarn and then multiply it as required to work out the number of skeins required.
