What to do when you dont have enough yarn?

How do you make yarn go further?

The first and easiest way to make your yarn go farther in a project is to make a gauge test and adjust your hook size. While a general rule is that a larger hook will make larger stitches and a smaller hook will make smaller stitches, it may not always result in a different amount of yarn.

Do I have enough yarn for another row?

One is to stretch your stitches out along your needle, and possibly onto a second needle depending on the number you have. Then, take the end of your yarn along the stitches. If your yarn goes along the length of the stitches four times it’s a pretty safe bet you have enough to complete the next row.

What stitch uses the least yarn knitting?

You could use garter, seed stitch… Also consider using a slightly larger needle size, as that will help save yarn for the same given measurements. The fabric will be more open and drapey, obviously, but that’s not a huge issue for scarves.

What crochet pattern uses the least amount of yarn?

Openwork stitch patterns often use the least yarn. For example, a double crochet mesh will use less yarn than a basic double crochet fabric because it has openwork spaces between the dc stitches.

Does using a bigger crochet hook use less yarn?

How do I know if I have enough yarn for another row in crochet?

Find the half way point in your remaining yarn (or further towards the working end if rows are increasing). Tie a small removable knot at about that point. If you finish your row/repeat before you get to the knot then you know you can have another row/repeat.
