Yarn Calculator

I did all the maths so you don’t have to. Try this spreadsheet for stitch counts, estimating yarn usage, and resizing your shawl.

The pattern requires ~65% of Colour A for Colour B, e.g. if you have 1,000 yards of Colour A, you need ~650 yards of Colour B, assuming both colours work up similarly.

Final Thoughts

I’m silly and messed up on the setup, so I’m one stitch shorter for Colour B, and one stitch longer for Colour A than as written in the pattern. Only upon reflection, and proper spreadsheeting, did I realise where I’d messed up.

I could also have inserted one more increase/decrease pair, to make the fullest use of my yarn. At that point, however, I was finished and didn’t want to rip back and reknit.

Disregarding all this angst, I love this pattern and project.

The huge needle was used to achieve a very very loose bind off.
