There is nothing worse than working on a project only to look down half way through it and realize that you have run out of yarn. Most patterns will let you know how much yarn you need for the project. And since every persons tension is different you may want to buy a little extra, or work up a swatch, just to be safe.
Note: If you are using a virtual pattern try to visit the site where pattern originated from. This lets the writer know of new interests in their patterns. It could also lead them to extra income from your visit. also please refrain from any form of pattern sharing of paid patterns. This hurts everyone in the industry, from the buyer to the creator and most importantly the pattern writer.
Out of yarn but need to feed the beast? No worries. Yarn does not always have to be your canvas. You can also use old t-shirts, bed sheets and plastic shopping bags to create fun new items. Or if it must be yarn you may want to take an old sweater apart.
