Dovenby is worked back and forth from the neck down. The body is finished with I-Cord, beginning with an I-Cord bind off and then transitioning into an Attached I-Cord Edging, incorporating button loops on the left front side. Both sides of Dovenby appear the same, so you may find it helpful to identify the right side of work with a marker.
