The Crocheter's handy guide to Yarn Requirements by Ann Budd

How much yarn do you need for a crochet project? This guide contains specific yardage requirements for nine of the most popular crocheted items—caps, scarves, bags, afghans, ponchos, baby sweaters, short skirts, long skirts, and tops. The yardages are given for working in carious sizes in single crochet using five standard yarn weights, from fingering to bulky. Keep this guide in your crochet bag and refer to it for all of your basic patterns—no matter what size yarn you want to use, you will no longer need to guess how much to purchase for an afhan for a new baby, a cap for your sister, a summer top for a friend, or a generous tote to hold your current project.
