How much yarn do I need for latch hooking a cushion?

The amount of yarn needed for a latch hooking project depends on the lenght of the yarn used for each knot and the number of knots in a project.

Most latch hooking projects for cushions are made with 7,5 cm (3 inch) long lenghts of yarn for each knot. If you like to make a cushion of 40 x 40 cm this means your will make 2500 knots. 2500 knots times 7,5 cm totals to a minimum 188 meter. Using our Gordita wool you would need 3 balls of 50 gram.

Fringes and longer lenghts require more yarn.
