The Bokabay is a crochet sweater worked from the top down in one piece, seamlessly. It features a scoop neck and a boxy relaxed fit around the body and long loose sleeves ending with a narrow cuff.

The stitch pattern is interesting without being overly complex, enabling every level of crocheter to enjoy the rhythm. It features relaxing and repetitive ribbing rows alternating with waves, which creates an eye-catching surface and a soft and squishy fabric. The textured ribbing at the hem, neckline, and cuffs gives the sweater an allover everyday-casual look.
