    Width = 150mm, Diameter = 47mm, Length = ? Should have tried harder in math class

    Hi.

    I wish to design a pattern to go on a rolling pin (cylinder).

    The pins length is 150mm. It's diameter 47mm. What size canvass should I be working on Width = 150mm, Length = ?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Best,
    Lee

    The circumference of a cylindrical rolling pin is  \pi D. So that's  3.14 \times 47mm = 147.7 mm.
