SC/HDC/DC Yarn Calculator

HOW TO USE THE SC/HDC/DC YARN CALCULATOR

This calculator was designed to help you calculate how much yarn you need for a crochet project using sc/hdc/dc stitches.

To use this calculator, the first thing you need to do is do a sample of ten stitches of the stitch you want to use. Do these 10 stitches, then unpull it and measure how long it is in inches. (Don’t count tails.) Put this length in the first question marked 1. On your graph, count how many blocks of the colour there are. Put this number in the second question marked 2. On the brand and type of yarn you wish to use, check the label and see how many yards of yarn there are in one skein or ball. Put this number in the third question, marked 3.

Once these three numbers are in, you can find out how many yards of the colour you will need, and so how many skeins or balls of yarn you will need.

C2C Yarn Calculator

HOW TO USE THE C2C YARN CALCULATOR

This calculator was designed to help you calculate how much yarn you need for a C2C or miniC2C project.

To use this calculator, the first thing you need to do is do a sample of one C2C or mini C2C block (depending on which stitch you are using). You only need to do one “square” or c2c block. Make this square and then unpull it and measure how long it is in inches. (Don’t count tails.) Put this length in the first question marked 1. On your graph, count how many blocks of the colour there are. Put this number in the second question marked 2. On the brand and type of yarn you wish to use, check the label and see how many yards of yarn there are in one skein or ball. Put this number in the third question, marked 3.

Once these three numbers are in, you can find out how many yards of the colour you will need, and so how many skeins or balls of yarn you will need.

BLANKET SIZE CALCULATOR

HOW TO USE THE BLANKET SIZE CALCULATOR (Not suitable for C2C blankets)

Make a sample of ten stitches across from your desired stitch (usually sc/hdc/dc) and do two rows. Measure this sample across and down in inches. It’s okay to include any height of the original chain. Put the width in inches in the question marked 1. Put the height in inches in the question marked 2. On your graph, count how many blocks across and down it is. Put the number of blocks from the width in question 3, and the number of blocks from the height in question 4. On the right hand side, it will show how wide and tall your blanket should end up being.

C2C BLANKET SIZE CALCULATOR

HOW TO USE THE C2C BLANKET SIZE CALCULATOR

Make a sample of one C2C or MiniC2C block. (Usually 2 or 3 hdc/dc stitches). Measure this block across and down in inches.

Put the width in inches in the question marked 1. Put the height in inches in the question marked 2. On your graph, count how many blocks across and down it is. Put the number of blocks from the width in question 3, and the number of blocks from the height in question 4. On the right hand side, it will show how wide and tall your blanket should end up being.
