This photo shows crocheting the armhole steek on my Amphora using a small crochet hook. I learned to do this from the book 'Sweaters From Camp' by Meg Swansen and others. Great technique and easy to do when on the road!

This shows the body of my Amphora tied with a piece of yarn so I can work on the sleeves without having the body flop around and get messy.
