How Many Skeins?
Posted 31 August 2008 - 11:33 AM
My question is, how many skeins of yarn would I need for an afghan? I thought that would be good practice for me....would like to crochet one for my Mom.
I know it would depend on the pattern and all...let's just say if I were to make a Granny Square Afghan, how many skeins do you think I would need? I found a great buy on Bernat yarn at Michaels yesterday ($1.49)...I think there was about 200 yards in one skein.
Thanks in advance...I LOVE Crochetville!

Coats and Clark has mountains of free afghan patterns you might want to look at just so you can get a close estimate.
