How many yards is 2 ounces?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

They can't be compared. A yard is a distance, an ounce is a weight. The length of 2 ounces of yarn would depend upon the thickness of the yarn and the type of material the yarn is made of (lambs wool, acrylic, etc). I have had some luck when substituting a yarn with a replacement that was an equivalent grams per meter (ounces per yard).

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

This might help you for future reference: there is 28.47 grams in 1 oz., so your answer is (approximately 1-3/4 0z.)

My info is slightly different but the end result is the same. Approx. 1.75 ounce in 50 grams.

If you know the ounces, multiply by 28.35 to get the grams.

If you know the grams, multiply by .0353 to get the ounces

How do you do a seed stitch in knitting?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Moss Stitch (or Seed Stitch) can be worked over either an odd or even number of stithes and you simply repeat the same two stitches to achieve the look.

If working over an odd number of stitches:

Knit 1 stitch, Purl 1 stitch and repeat this across the row for every row

This will create a "broken rib".

If working over even stitches however you must alternate the rows to achieve the same look.

Row 1: Knit 1 Stitch, Purl 1 Stitch across the row

Row 2: Purl 1 Stitch, Knit 1 Stitch across the row

You will repeat these two rows in order to get the same look as if you were working on an off number of stitches.

You are a beginner knitting a dishcloth consisting of knit and purl stitches on each row Instructions say to end by working a wrong side row Does this mean to purl all stitches in the final row?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

If you are alternating rows (knit one row, purl one row), the purl row is typically a "wrong-side" row. If it is a pattern stitch, it should state somewhere in the pattern what is the front and what is the back. The back is the "wrong-side"

What is the use of core spun yarn?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Corespun yarns are generally made of a continuous polyester fibre with what are referred to as "staple fibres" such as cotton or hemp wrapped around, and often finished with a gloss coating. Combined we end up with a very strong thread, with an interesting property: when it gets wet, the sheath expands, and if used in stitching, fills the stitch holes creating a waterproof seal. This is especially useful in shoes and boots, greatcoats, jackets, tents, weatherproof covers and sails. This does not impact on the strength of the thread because that is all in the polyester core.

There's another important property of such threads: during the textile manufacturing process, these threads pass through the sewing machine needles at very high speed. This would be enough to cause sufficient friction to melt the core (and jam the machine), but as it is insulated by the cotton sheath, melting is prevented.

You can knit loads of things! Scarves, mittens, socks, jumpers, blankets, or just anything you can think of. You can also knit with different colours, different stitches and styles and with different decorations.

If it's a bulky yarn then you should use hook size H and up. If it's thinner then stick to the smaller size hooks. If your hook is too small then the yarn will not fit on the hook and it may snag on the hook as your working.

Does felt stick to felt?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The simple answer is yes, how well depends on a lot of factors, for example wool felt will stick to wool felt better than to acrylic "craft felt" will to acrylic, because it has more of a loop quality, (think of the loops on Velcro)

You want to try and match the felt types you want to stick together for best results. For example I wouldn't try acrylic with wool, I would use acrylic with acrylic and so on... Also very large or heavy felt pieces won't stick as well as thin, light ones. I

f you are making a piece you are putting a lot of effort into or you want to hold up well to wear and tear I would recommend wool felt if that's too costly I would use a wool blend felt. Hope this helps.
