This leaflet contains yarn yardage requirements for eight of the most popular knitted items: sweaters, vests, mittens, gloves, socks, scarves, tams, and hats. Based on the projects in The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns, the yardages are for sizes ranging from baby or toddler to large adult, and for multiple gauges appropriate for fine to bulky yarns. Keep this guide handy for those times when you just might buy yarn - always! 4" x 9 1/2"

Comments about Knitter's Handy Guide to Yarn Requirements:
Yarn is a weakness...I buy it without a specific pattern in mind. I buy ALL the matching skeins in a close-out bin. Consequently, I have tons of yarn and not a lot of project patterns in mind. This chart is perfect for dealing with the "what do I make with this?" syndrome! You can always figure out how much yardage you have on hand, and now you can figure out what general items you can make with it! A great boon for novice or experienced knitters who are pack rat yarn collectors. Not only would I recommend this to a friend, I've given it to two!
