Is 200g enough for a scarf?

You will need: 100 grams of chunky-‐weight yarn for the hat and something to decorate it. 200 grams of chunky weight wool for the scarf, or more if you would like it to be longer than 165cm. 6mm knitting needles, either straight or circular. A very large-‐eyed needle for sewing in ends of yarn.

How do I calculate how much wool I need?

Formula: (length x width x gauge) / 6 = yards needed. Length and width are in inches and gauge is in stitches per inch. For example, if you’d like a scarf 48″ long and 8″ wide using a worsted weight yarn, (48 x 8 x 5) / 6 = 320 yards. Round up as running out of yarn is the worst!
