Need help with yarn requirement
I'm contemplating crocheting an afghan for my mother, but need some help figuring out the yarn requirements. We saw a photo of an afghan worked in Noro Kureyon Sock in one of the current crochet mags at B&N. It's one huge granny square, and it was fabulous. As it's in an advertisement, of course there is no pattern easily available and I haven't had any luck with google.

For a 60" square afghan, crocheted in one very simple granny square, how much yarn do you think I might need? I found the pattern for the Babette Blanket from IW Crochet which is 40x43" and it called for 3500 yards of Koigu, which is also a fingering weight. However it's 19 skeins of mostly different colors and who knows how much of that is leftover at the end, whereas with the Kureyon, I'd only use one color for it's striping ability.

Any thoughts? I've found a site that has the Kureyon Sock discounted nicely, and I'd love to order it before it is no longer on sale! TIA!
