how do I figure this? I'm ordering yarn that is in 50 gram balls so if I pick a pattern that uses yarn by the ounce how do I know how may balls I need? Thanks!

50 grams= 1 ounce

If you want to find out anything else, just multiply the number of grams by 0.03527 :thumbsup:

30 grams = 1 ounce
454 grams = 1 pound

Hope this helps

Oops I did my math wrong :blush:

50 grams is more close to 2 ounces. Sorry about the wrong answer :blush:

Math is not my subject so I use a conversion chart (http://www.onlineconversion.com/).

Different yarns have different density. Don't go by weight--go by yardage!

Find out the yardage of the yarn called for in the pattern, and find out the yardage of the yarn you want to use.

"50 g = ? oz" and google will give you the answer! :thumbsup:

Thanks for confirming what I thought I knew :lol: I always go by yardage, too.

454 grams = 1 pound

so, if a single American Bill (\$1,\$5,\$10,\$20) weighs one gram
then a Pound of \$20s would be
\$9080
I keep asking, but now I know how much I am owed
