It's not an exact science because it depends on the make up of the yarn. But I had a look at aran weight yarn on woolwarehouse website. Cascade 220 wool is 22Oyards/200m for 100g
depending on how accurate you need your answer it's roughly 6-7 oz but I'm not working it out accurately for you. :rasp:
Don't forget UK yarns are sold in metric now and if you need to scale up that might make a difference in how many balls you need.

A scarf for my husband. Have bought Rico Aran creative cotton wool - nice colours. Still just getting to grips with knitting so nothing too taxing! In the middle of beanie hat for my granddaughter and have a baby blanket in the queue to be made. No pressure ....!

Yes, it’s a great site I think, lots of patterns. I get some from Pinterest too. I’m really just a beginner and don’t want anything too difficult :blink:
