Notes

Yoke was too shallow initially. A year later I frogged the bands and yoke to make it deeper. I did NOT unkink the yarn before reknitting. Had no trouble with it whatsoever.

Since the buttons are wood, I didn’t want to have to remove and re-sew every time it was washed, so I attached them with thread shanks and made buttonholes on both bands.

Wow, the color is terrible in the pics… It’s actually a medium green, not a light silvery color.
