Yardage note: Yardages given are rough guidelines only. As there are many possible design options, CC yardage will vary significantly. The MC yardage given will be sufficient to make a garment with minimal or no patterning. The CC yardage gives a rough sense of how much total CC would be used for an extensively patterned colourwork yoke worked all in CCs. Adding further colourwork at hem, cuffs, or all over the garment may require more CC.
