I’m looking at Keep It Simple Towels but cannot find reference to calculating weft requirements.  The organic cotton I purchased has I believe 710 yards per cone.  Will this be enough for a towel or should I get another cone of each colour before beginning?

One cone should be enough 20 ppi x 20″ wide = 400 ends x 30″ long = 12,000″ divided by 36 = 333 yds of weft per towel approx.
