Hi there, I’m about to embark on a cowl pattern which calls for 2 skeins of wool, with a weight of 3. Can anyone advise me as to how many 100 g balls of wool I would need? Thank you.
Skeins of yarn aren’t all that well defined, neither is the yardage in 100gr balls of yarn.
What pattern are you making? Does it recommend a particular yarn?
If it’s 50 gr. skeins, one half of one.
More info please.
Thank you for replying. I’m knitting a Fluffy Clouds cowl from Allfreeknitting and it uses 2 skeins of Bernat Softee Baby Solids and Marls - I live in the UK and buy my wool in 100 g balls. I want just to use baby dk for this though. Thak you.

Bernat Softee Baby Solids and Marls comes in 140 gr balls with 362 yards(331 meters). Since the pattern calls for 2 balls I think you probably need 3-100 gr balls.
That’s a pretty cowl. I did a scarf in brioche and was surprised that it was easy once I found out how to fix mistakes without frogging. Enjoy! and I hope you share pictures.
Thank you so much! I’m fairly new to knitting so this forum has helped a
lot! Thank you.
Very soft, pretty pattern.
GG has given you the yardage required (2 x 362yds) which is more important than the weight in grams. Even yarns in the same class (#3) can vary in yardage, so use that as a guide.
Thank you so much!
