Notes

This is for the Afghans for Afghans 500 sweater campaign for school girls.

5/27/13 I am using 2 strands of each yarn to make a bulky weight. I tried to make this using the EPS seamless instructions but the yoke decreases don’t seem to work the same. The neck was going to be too small. I also found that I put too many stitches on holders at the underarm so I ripped back again and will use Ann Budd’s instructions instead.
