6 Ways to Use a Food Scale in Knitting

Knitting Video Tutorial: The Knitting Tool You Never New You Needed: 6 Ways to Use a Food Scale in Knitting
From yarn bowls to ball winders, gauge rulers to row counters, we knitters love our tools and gadgets. One of the most well used tools in my studio (besides my knitting needles, of course) is not something you'll find in a yarn shop. It's a food scale! Here are my 6 favorite ways to use a food scale in knitting.
  1. Dividing a yarn ball in half.
  2. Adjusting project dimensions to use up all of my yarn.
  3. Avoiding yarn chicken.
  4. Determining yardage of leftover yarn.
  5. Estimating the finished size or yardage requirements for a project.
  6. Determining yarn usage when grading patterns.
