Hey! If you follow a pattern it usually tells you about how much you need. It depends a lot on the size of the yarn and hook as well as the pattern you choose, so the only answer I can give you is a lot of yarn. I would say probably 2 pounds of the Pound of Love yarn types? Maybe? I can’t say for sure.

I doubt anyone going to do the math for you especially with too many unknown variables.
But, did find a link for you that you could check out.
You can sign up for her e book and then she walks you through the math.
How many yards you need for a given project depends on several factors:
your tension
your hook size
yarn weight.

It’s at Joy of Motion Crochet Blog. Apparently, I’m not allowed to add links yet. :smirk:
