Volume 3

It has been brought to my attention: The yarn I used for the 'Beaded Tweed Tee' on page 43 has been discontinued by the manufacturer. Although this is very disappointing, there is no reason why this sweater couldn't be made using a comparable yarn. If you are interested in knitting this sweater, look for a cotton, cotton blend or comparable thread in one of the many new fibers available. Check your gauge to ensure the sizing.
