Crochet Handy helps you quickly determine exactly how much yarn you need for your next crochet project. Ann Budd, best-selling author and expert crocheter, has transformed her successful Crocheter’s Handy Guide to Yarn Requirements (Interweave) into the perfect app for crocheters of all skill levels. This visual tool explores the yardage requirements for eight of the most popular crocheted items: basic caps, scarves, bags, afghans, ponchos, baby sweaters, skirts, and tops. Crochet Handy shows all sizes ranging from baby or toddler to large adult, using five standard yarn weights—from fingering to bulky. You’ll want this app any time you’re working with your yarn—buying online at a craft or yarn shop, and with your own yarn stash at home. It’s the best go-everywhere accessory for crocheters!

I love Ann Budd and have the paper version of her crochet yarn estimater. Unfortunately, this app does not equal it. The projects are vey limited - including skullcaps instead of hats, only sleeveless adult sweaters, but two types of skirts. I don't think I will ever make a skirt but I do make sweaters and hats. Scarves are limited to only 3 sizes. And gauge is limited to 2.5 to 6. This is very disappointing. I expected more from something from Interweave.
Not as thorough as what you can get in a book but for a quick reference and tool for my phone when I'm out shopping, it's great. Looking forward to updates with more projects and gauges, etc, nice first shot!
Super quick, easy to use. Make a quick gauge swatch if you don't know what hook size delivers a certain # of sts per inch or cm.
Best needlework app I've found.
