#3 3/32"
#4 1/8"

       How to Determine the amount of Wool Fabric required for Hooking a piece........


         Multiply the length by width (inches) X 6 (for #8) divided by 1664 = yards needed.


              for example: you need to figure out how much wool for an element that is about 4" x 12" using a #8 cut wool strip (1/4" wide) so....

              4 x 12 = 48  x 6 = 288 square inches divided by 1664 (one yard measuring approximately 32" x 52" after shrinkage) =173 square inches which is a little less than 1/8 yard or a piece of fabric measuring 13" x 16" or   6-1/2" x 32".

Yardage measures as follows after washing: 52" wide by 32" long (1664 square inches):

1/32 yard = 3-1/4" x 16" = 52 square inches

1/16 yard = 6-1/2" x 16" = 104 square inches

1/8 yard = 13" x 16" = 208 square inches

1/4 yard = 26" x 16" = 416 sqaure inches

1/2 yard = 52" x 16" = 832 square inches

3/4 yard = 39" x 32" = 1248 square inches

1 yard = 52" x 32" = 1664 square inches

If you are using any other size strip than #8, then you would multiply the sqaured off area of the hooked element by the following:

up to #4 cut use 4 multiplier

up to #6 cut use 5 mutiplier

up to #8 cut use 6 multiplier

up to #10 cut use 8 mutliplier
