I know how to crochet, but I do not know how to read a pattern. I am trying to make a King size blanket. I have no idea how much yarn to buy for a blanket that big. I just need to know how many total skeens of yarn to buy. I plan on using two colors equally. I want to get all the yarn at once to save trips and searching for matching lot numbers. I have searched for an answer on the web and it seems to be futile.
Thanks for any crafty ideas!
Here was a forum question that answers it for a simple afghan.... It really depends on the pattern....but 16 skeins or 6+ pounds sound right. It really depends on the stitch, weight and pattern.
