Designed by Meghan Kelly, Bodie is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up. The cable repeat is centered on the front and back for each size. As a result, you will need to begin and end the chart at different locations depending on the size you are working. The K1, P1 Ribbing that is worked flat is designed to appear continuous once the pieces are seamed.
When finishing, pay careful attention to the 3-Needle bind off; the neckline is left as-is, with no additional pick up or edging worked.
