Cost & Consumption calculation of Sweater

Learn Apparel Merchandising, Learn Fashion design.
Cost & Consumption calculation of Sweater
From this example we will learn how calculate the price of sweater

Style: Cable leader Jumper, 100% Acrylic, 3 GG
         Weight of yarn = 12.00 LBS/Doz
         Wastage of yarn  = 10%
         Yarn price = $2.50/lbs
         Accessories Cost = $4.00/doz
         CM  = $36.00/doz  

Rules =  {(Sweater garments weight(doz) + Wastage) X Yarn price(per lbs)} + Accessories cost (per doz) + CM (per doz)
= (12.00 + 10%) X $2.50 + $4.00 + $36.00
= (13.2 X $2.50) + $4.00 + $36.00
= $33.00 + $4.00 + $36.00
= $73.00/doz (without any commercial cost)
= $6.0833 / pc
