I have ordered yarn for a booga bag from knitpicks. I’m soooo excited about it. I have ordered 2 balls of ‘cherry blossom’ and two balls of ‘carrot’, and I believe the yardage, oz., and gauge is the same as the yarn the actual booga bag pattern asks for. I want to do a stripe pattern but need help figuring out exactly how to make sure I have enough yarn for the width of stripes I want to do. I want it to be similar to the picture I have posted below, with wide stripes of one colour and narrow stripes of the other. I want to do the bottom of the bag, the narrow stripes, and the strap in the ‘cherry blossom’ colour, and the wide stripes in the carrot colour. Because I have 1 ball more yarn than the booga bag pattern asks for, should I just go for it and see what happens? Do, say, 10 rounds for the wide stripe and 4 rounds for the narrow stripe?? I’m also thinking of doing the i-cord strap first just to make sure I have enough for the strap, then knit the bottom then rounds of the stripe pattern until I’ve pretty much run out of yarn.
OR should I calculate it more specifically??? :?? (If so, that’s where I need the help!!!)
