hello everbody im martin. i am completely new to knitting only been knitting since yesterday but i really like it. i knitted with chopsticks and string for my first day but i now have a proper needle and yarn thank goodness.
oh well i have inserted a picture of something i done. very basic i guess. i was curious. if u look at my picture the left string is towards the ball of yarn and on the right side my string which i use to loop around my second needle when knitting. i am wondering say if i was making a scarf, how much string do i need on the right hand side?
before this i knitted like a very small piece then i was about to bind it off. i binded half of my piece then i had no yarn left on my ‘right’ side. So say if i was to make a scarf, how much yarn would i need on my ‘right’ side? is there a way to know how much yarn needed or is it just a estimate?
also for a scarf how many stitches am i looking to put on?
thank you for reading!
