Knitting Question


When you're nearing the end of a skein, is there a quick way to calculate if you have enough yarn length to knit another row?

    Well, it's not foolproof, but wrap the remaining yarn around your free needle-- three wraps per stitch in the row.

  2. I usually fold the remaining yarn into 4. If that's longer than your row, you've got enough yarn!

  3. I usually give it a check before I get right to the end, and measure in arm-lengths. Then I knit one row and check the remaining yarn in arm-lengths again.

    Rule of four works for me too: you need approximately four times the length of your row to finish. If you're working rib, you need to stretch out the rib to measure accurately, though.
