It depends on what kind of yarn you are buying (many yarns come in 6 oz. skeins and some only come in 3 oz.) on my mittens I used Caron Simply Soft (6 oz. a skein) and I used about half the skein. I made a size small, so you would need more yarn if you were making mittens for a big man's hands. so if you are buying any yarn that comes in a small skein (like 3 oz.) get two balls, and if you are buying a yarn that comes in larger ones (like 6 oz.) you will probably only need one
