In the Back, 210 rows are said to measure 62cm, but in the Front 172 rows are said to measure 62cm. Which is correct?

To get a different look you can decorate the sweater with embroidery, appliqué, ribbons, etc. I decorated the sweater with the machine embroidery: it was embroidered on a piece of a matching fabric, cut out and sewn on the sweater.
