How many oz. in a cone?

Posted by heidiho (My Page) on

I have a crochet pattern that calls for 1 1/2 cones(about 920-1035 yards) of 4 ply yarn.

How many oz. is that? I have 9 -- 6oz. skiens of yarn.
Can I make this blanket with the amount of yarn that I have?
Thanks for your time and have a nice evening.

How many yards in each skein (usually says on the skein)...that should help.

Thanks so very much. That's just what I needed.
It was so obvious I guess that's why I didn't get it. Too easy and I tried to make it harder than it was. lol
Thanks again for your help and have a nice day.

RE: How many oz. in a cone?

I just bought a cone of cotton worsted weight for dish cloths. It was a 14 oz cone. I don't know if this will help you, as I don't know how that compares to the 4-ply in your pattern.
