I'm ready buy yarn to make a crocheted afghan. It's from an Annie's Attic book, "Learn To Do Bavarian Crochet". The finished size is 46 x 46 inches. I want to make it larger, in the neighborhood of
60 x 60 inches. Is there any formula for calculating how much more yarn, or a good way to estimate what I'll need? Any and all advice is most welcome!

46x46=2,116
60x60=3,600
3,600 minus 2,116=1,484
difference of 1484 divide by the original 2116 = about 70%
You should need about 70% more yarn if you make it 60x60 (not quite double, but getting there).

Thank you for supplying this information. I am sure it will come in handy from time to time.
