I have a pattern that calls for 4 balls of yarn. Is this the same as a skein? I thought things came in different amounts so you need to get the right amount by either weight (ounces) or yards.
It just seems odd to me because it is for a sweater and it wants 4 balls. Another pattern for a sweater wants 8 skeins of the same yarn. Seems like a big difference if you ask me. I just want to make sure that I get enough yarn when I buy it.
