I'm putting together a knitting project -- It's a knit 2-color labyrinth. I've been kind-of working on the chart for a while and it's basically finished. I want to work in Worsted weight with size 8 needles. The project is 91 stitches wide and 125 rows "tall." My gauge is approximately 5 stitches and 5 rows per sq. inch.
Here's the problem. I don't really know how to estimate the yarn. It's going to be in 2 colors, but I'm going to work the second color in the back (I've already practiced this and sort-of gotten the hang of it ... which was difficult to figure out on the Purl rows, but I'm looking forward to giving it a try.)
I'm hoping to pick the yarn up sometime this week and have no clue how much to get. I've already decided to spend more than I normally would and buy nicer yarn than...say... Hobby Lobby :-) But I don't want to spend TOO much more than I really have to.
Can you help? Teach me guru men (and women)!
Grace and Peace,
