gram to ounce conversion?
how do I figure this? I'm ordering yarn that is in 50 gram balls so if I pick a pattern that uses yarn by the ounce how do I know how may balls I need? Thanks!

50 grams= 1 ounce

If you want to find out anything else, just multiply the number of grams by 0.03527

conversion
30 grams = 1 ounce
454 grams = 1 pound

Hope this helps

Oops I did my math wrong

50 grams is more close to 2 ounces. Sorry about the wrong answer

Math is not my subject so I use a conversion chart.

Different yarns have different density. Don't go by weight--go by yardage!

Find out the yardage of the yarn called for in the pattern, and find out the yardage of the yarn you want to use.
