I am currently knitting the LTK Picky Pants pattern in medium size and it calls for 260 yards for the longies. That is just a little over 1 skein in the yarn I purchased.

Re: How many oz of yarn for longies?

For mediums with growing room I would either get 1 skein that gets a lot of yardage ( I hear BBR goes a long way, just check the yardage before purchasing), and some trim to go with it, or just get 2 skeins (most are 3.5-4oz) to be on the safe side.

Oh, and you CAN learn how to knit! I loved knit longies but had little $$$, so I learned how, mostly from www.knittinghelp.com.

I love doing it, and I get to make all the woolies I want for my 2 boys.

I just did a pair r 19, h 22, i 11.5 and it took 7 ounces of Cestari yarn.

This post is a good reference
