How many yards do you have? Before you start your next project, make sure you have enough!

Knitting Patterns by Yardage

Some of us choose to pick out our knitting pattern before we choose our yarn, but other people work in the opposite order. Who could be blamed for finding the perfect ball (or six) of yarn and snatching it up right away? Alternatively, maybe you found one special skein in your stash and thought to yourself "What can I make with 300 yards of yarn, anyway?"

We've taken all of the guesswork out of the process. Each link below will take you to a page that contains a bunch of suggestions for however many yards of yarn you have, and to do you one better, they've even been split up based on yarn weight, so you don't find yourself falling in love with a pattern that you can't even knit. Beneath each link is a teaser of a few of the amazing patterns you can find in that page, so you can even get an idea of how much you can knit with your yardage.

While you shouldn't have much trouble knitting up anything in your chosen yardage which is in the same weight category as your yarn, we always recommend checking your gauge and making any necessary adjustments to make sure that it comes out looking the same. Additionally, bear in mind that any finished project will look different from the original if you don't use the same yarn as stated in the pattern. With that in mind, go ahead and browse these knitting patterns by yardage until you find your perfect pattern!

This is where you start to find yourself with a fair amount of freedom. While 400 yards still may not be enough to complete a full-sized sweater, you have more than enough yarn for a gorgeous pair of socks or a pretty shawlette.
