How much Yarn?

Me again… One day I’ll knit a whole thing without help!

I may be really silly here and missing the obvious, but how many skeins of yarn does this call for?

At first I thought it was 120 yards - but thats actually only 1 skein.

Has anyone knitted this already? It’d be the 40 inch chest I’d be knitting.

Thanks! :grrr:

Looks like 6 skeins so…(doing math) 720 yards. :slight_smile:


under materials its says

GGH Mystik [54% cotton, 46% viscose; 120 yd/110m per 50g skein];
color: Ivory (02); [color=red]4[5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6] [/color]skeins

I added the red for the skeins… you should use 6 skeins but I’d buy 7 to be safe :happydance:

Oh Dear! :grrr:

I was so hung up on the difficult numbers I ignored the obvious!!!

I thought those numbers were related to the colour!

It’s too late at night for reading!

Thank you guys!

LOL–you’re welcome! :slight_smile: We’ve all had those moments.

I love your user name, by the way. My name’s Jennifer, and most people call me Jen. As a joke, I had a professor who proclaimed “Then I shall call you ‘Niffer!’” I smile every time I see your name here. :slight_smile:


I’m glad I made someone smile with it - my usual web-name was taken when I registered on here but I’ve yet to find anyone using it!

Niffer is always option 2 as when my sister was very young she’d call me jed-niffer like it was two words!

LOL–that’s pretty good for a little kid! All I got from my baby brother was “Foe!” :roflhard: Which has also stuck! :rofl:
