yarn yardage for self design pattern
Is there a way to figure a yarn yardage for a self designed pattern? if so how does one figure it? I have designed a scarf and I am not sure if I will have enough yarn to make it long enough.

You can look at patterns that are constructed similarly with the same gauge to see what yardage is used for them.

Thanks for the sugestions. I am thinking about redesign it again. Some of the stitch patterns doesn't stand out like I would like them too.
