Hello fellow Craftsters!
I didn't know if I should post this topic on the Crochet board or the Knitting board, but I had to choose one so here I am.
I recently bought $50 worth of yarn to make myself a laptop bag based on this pattern
and $50 is a LOT of money for me. I started crocheting it because I figured it would be sturdier with crochet stitches (can't felt it since it's all acrylic), but I'm halfway through my yarn and NOT close to the halfway mark of the bag. I refue on principle to go out and buy another $50 of yarn, so I can have a $100 laptop bag. $100 for a laptop bag? I might as well use the yarn for something else and just BUY a laptop bag.
I've heard that crocheting uses up 3x more yarn than knitting, so I'm seriously considering frogging and knitting it instead ... does anyone have any experience in the difference of yarn usage between crocheting and knitting that can help me figure out if the effort will be worth it or not?
Thanks bunches in advance!
