Formula: (length x width x gauge) / 6 = yards needed. Length and width are in inches and gauge is in stitches per inch. For example, if you’d like a scarf 48″ long and 8″ wide using a worsted weight yarn, (48 x 8 x 5) / 6 = 320 yards. Round up as running out of yarn is the worst!

How much yarn do I need to crochet a top?
Get out a skein of yarn that’s 4.5 ounces (127.5 g) or 227 yards (208 m) long. You can use any type of yarn you like, but pick yarn that’s soft so your crop top is comfortable to wear. Keep in mind that you won’t use all of the skein. Avoid using 100% cotton yarn since it will shrink if you toss it in the dryer.
