1 ounce = 28.3495231 grams

28.3495231 x 50 = 1417.5 divided by 38 = 37.3 skeins

This should be right...hopefully someone will verify my answer. Hope this helps...Mary

It should be:
28.3495231 x 38 = 1077.28 divided by 50 = 21.58 skeins
Sorry bout that!

100g = 3.5 oz. So 50g = 1.75oz. So you need 22 hanks of 50g each. BUT if you are using a different yarn from the one the pattern advises, be careful of the yardage. That and the yarn weight is even more important. What is the original yarn, and what are you planning on using?

Well, I went to an on line metric converter and it said that 38 oz is 1077.3 grams. If you divide 1077.3 by 50 to see how many 50 gram hanks you would need you get 21.5 something so you would need to throw in another one to be sure to have enough so 22.

Checking what mwhite said I multiplied 38 skeins (37.3 you'd have to get 38 to be sure) by 50 I got 1900 grams in 38 skeins. When I entered 1900 grams in the metric converter it said that equals 67 ounces.

Whew, thanks ladies! LOL! I just pictured Tina buying 37 skeins and everything she makes is from the same yarn for 2 years!
