That was really bulky yarn. Now, on the other hand, I just finished 2 shorties, medium and larges with longer legs (4 inches) with a more worsted weight and I was able to do it with ~6.5-7 oz of the colorway, plus trim.

Re: Why about yarn

I am with Micky. It is hard to know what ounces everyone is looking for. I don't ever mind dying up additional yarn. I don't know about all dyers but most I have talked to don't mind if you ask for additional yarn.
