I don't need it yet, thanks. I just need to know how much of the yarn for the largest measurement. I'll probably have to make it bigger, too, and I don't know how to do that

I live in Kent, and find it hard to get quality products made in this country. Even when it's a British company, the products are often made elsewhere for cheapness. My local yarn store was also 2...
