A little harder than average, but still doable, “Bacon n’ Eggs” is worked bottom up, with the only finishing being the underarms, woven together with Kitchener st , duplicate st yolks, and the ribbed button bands, picked up and worked. The yoke is worked in 4 different colors, and a little fiddly at times, but the final results are so much fun that it’s worth the effort. You do need to read charts and instructions for this one.
