How much yarn for fairisle?
Is there anyone on this forum who knows how to estimate the amount of each color needed for a fairisle project? It seems to me there must be some formula using the number of rows in which each color will be used, the gauge, size, etc. that would help me figure out how much yarn to buy. This is for a fairisle pattern of my own design so I can't use the amounts specified for another pattern. I have several books that show how to design a garment, but not how to estimate the yardage of each color required.
