Yarn Calculator is designed for knitters and crocheters alike. Use Yarn Calculator to help figure out how many skeins of yarn is needed for that next project. This app quickly and easily converts measurements to and from yards, grams, meters and ounces by doing the math for you.
Yarn Calculator now comes with a Yarn Estimator. The estimator will help you figure the yardage of any scrap yarn you may have laying around. Note: You must have a scale that weighs to the nearest tenth of a gram.
I would have loved this app if the estimator worked differently. You know what it's like finding a scale that does one tenth of a gram or smaller? Figuring out how much yarn for a pattern is pretty basic math I can do that in my head. It's the estimator that caught my attention. Only out of 3 scales in my house for soap making not one goes to a tenth of a gram. Wouldn't it be easier to go from the amount if grams in a skein and yardage in a skein to estimate the yardage by current weight? I think it would make a lot more user friendly and open to more people.
