2. Select size or length (supports both English and Metric units).
3. Select the gauge in stitches per inch/cm.
That's it! Stash Knitting will tell you how much yarn you need.
Ratings and Reviews
I purchased this app for a couple of reasons. I love the idea of being able to quickly calculate yardage requirements for a project on the fly, especially when contemplating a sale yarn purchase, or an impulse buy with no particular project in mind. My only critique at the moment is the limited size range on calculations. For instance, I am pretty tall, so I never knit a scarf less than 60 inches long, and sometimes as long as 72 inches. The max length on scarves in this app is 54 inches. I hope this app continues to expand. Love the concept.
Great for what it has
The calculator works well for as much as it has. I bought the app primarily for the sweater yardage calculator and it has everything else but a sweater! Also, as the previous reviewer mentioned, a greater range of lengths and sizes would be a huge plus. I’m sincerely hoping the next update at least adds the promised sweater calculator.
Not quite what it said it was
This was written up as having sweater yardage but only has vests and only has 2 sizes for a scarf - not really that helpful. It's a great concept but needs an awful lot of building - I hope they add significantly to it and actually out in sweater measurements and drastically increase size choices
