Bozeman is worked from the top down, beginning at the back shoulders. The back is worked to the armholes, then placed on hold while each side of the front is picked up from the back shoulders and worked to the armholes. Then the back and front are joined and the body is worked back and forth until the neck shaping is completed. Stitches are cast on for the center front neck, the fronts are joined, and the body is worked in the round to the bottom edge. The sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked to the cuffs, with short-row shaping to shape the sleeve caps (instructions are included for German short rows). Stitches for the shawl collar are picked up around the neck edge and the collar is shaped using short rows. The collar is finished with an i-cord bind-off.
