A common question that comes up among crocheters and knitters is wondering whether they have enough yarn for a project. There are mathematical formulas you can use to figure it out, but if you aren’t in the mood, try one of these instead:

1. Find a similar project in the same yarn weight and see how much yarn it calls for. (Ravelry’s advanced search makes this easy – if the pattern bothers listing yarn amounts on the Ravelry listing.)

2. Use a handy dandy table like this one from Lion Brand.
