Am I miss reading the provided pattern... is this only listing for the back? I don't see pattern for front, sleeves, neck :( Is there an additional page that I did not see?
Sorry about that! I missed the last page when I first published this pattern. I've added the remainder of the pattern. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
