Notes
This sweater is worked from the top down. The neck ribbing is worked flat, then joined to work in the round. After dividing the body and sleeves, the body is worked in the round to the hem. Sleeves are worked flat, then sewn together. Stitches for the center front detail are dropped down to just above the armholes for the Boho version, and just above the bottom ribbing for the Rocker version.
