How much yarn do you need to bind off?
My rule of thumb is to leave 3 times the amount of yarn needed for a row for a regular bind off. JSSBO, I’ll go 4 times or more. So if you used 3.5 yards for a pair of rows, you will need 1.75 yards (half) times 3 or 5.25 yards or 7 yards if you need 4 times.
What happens when you run out of yarn knitting?
If your yarn is plied, you can pull apart the plies to make the yarn thinner. Be sure to pull gently, otherwise you might break the yarn. You may also need to re-twist the yarn a little after pulling it apart. Then, just join the yarn to your working yarn and keep on knitting!
Can you add a new ball of yarn in the middle of a row?
If you run out of yarn in the middle of a row, your options are the same: Tie a temporary knot with both yarns, leaving 4- or 5-inch (10- to 13-centimeter) ends; or knit the next stitch with both strands, drop the old one, and continue knitting from the new ball.
Can you change yarn in the middle of a row?
To join new yarn in the middle of a row, when about 36 inches of the old yarn remains, work several more stitches with the old yarn, working the stitches over the end of new yarn (shown in double crochet). Then change yarns in stitch as previously explained.
