Sweaters knit in the round with EPS ?
Having just finished my 2nd BSJ, I'm thinking about getting brave and starting a pullover sweater for my granddaughter using EPS (Elizabeth's Percentage System.)

Has anyone made one of these, or one like it? EZ used a percentage system of the body size to figure out the dimensions of all portions of the sweater and knit it in sections: the body from hem to underarms, each sleeve from cuff to underarms, then joined everything but the underarms (grafted later) to work the yoke (she has umpteen yoke variations) using decreases to the neck.

Which yoke variation did you do, and how did you like working it?
