Dear Bipul Bhai

Seeking your permission for allow me to share the answer of Mr. Rahman's Question . if i make any mistake pls correct it .


Sweater don’t have solid or finished fabric like Woven & knit item, by linking one yarn with another the shape of the different part of sweater is made. so that there is no such consumption formula for sweater like knit & woven item .

For costing of sweater, we need to make a sample first as per customer required style, measurement & weight . It is wise to make the sample following the middle size of customer spec. Then weight that sweater & multiply the weight with 12 pcs to know the weight of per dozen sweater. Then add wastage percentage (Generally we calculate 10-20% wastage based on styling). This way we can found the sweater consumption

In the view of above the sweater costing formula will be like as below….

= Yarn weight (in LBS / dzn Garments ) + wastage X price of yarn /lbs 

= Result of usable total yarn  cost


Costing :-

  1.  Yarn :- Total usable Yarn cost/dzn 
  2.  Add total Accessories cost /dz 
  3.  Add Print/Emb.(If any) / dz 
  4.  Add Zipper cost (If any) / dz
  5. Add Button cost (If any) / dz
  6. Add CM (CM based on styling and gauge) /dz
  7. Add Commercial cost / dz
  8. Add Profit /dz
Then divided the price / 12 Pcs & you will get price / pc


Example: -

Say, 
Weight of following sweater is 8 lbs/ doz (12 GG basic Style)
Wastage is 12% of total weight = 0.96 lbs / doz
Yarn price  is $4 /lbs
Basic Accessories cost is: $5 / doz
Print cost : $ 0.65 / doz
Zipper + button cost : $1 / doz
CM : $28 / doz
Commercial cost : $2 / doz


Now the costing formula will be 

=  (Total usable yarn in lbs + 12% wastage ) X Yarn price/lbs + Accessories cost + Print cost + Zipper & button cost + CM + Commercial cost

= (8 lbs + 0.96 lbs ) X $4 + $5 + $0.65 + $1 + $28 + $2

=  8.96 lbs X $4 + $5 + $0.65 + $1 + $28 + $2

=  $35.84 + $5 + $0.65 + $1 + $28 + $2

= $ 72.49 / dozen

Then divided by 12,   

$ 72.49 /12 Pcs  

$ 6.04/pc FOB .

Now add your profit & submit the quotation to buyer.
