    Your calculations are assuming that the person can get gauge. Calculations should be done based on a sample motif and yardages used in that. Using only your method gives a false total if they can’t get gauge and more than likely will leave them short.
    Rule of thumb ALWAYS buy an extra ball at least.

    Wow! Thanks for this. I have often wondered how to figure up the yardage for different yarns. This is going to be a life saver. I am most definitely bookmarking this page.
