newbie? How to start?

I uploaded my pic. Picked the number of colors and size. How can I estimate how much yarn to buy? from stitches used? 

TIA

Kimtchon,

This is another feature we have in development.  For now, the best thing to do is make a swatch with your desired yarn and hook (assuming you're crocheting), then rip it out to get an appoximation of how much yarn your stitches use.  From there, you can calculate based on number of stitches.  Smile
