No intarsia, no picking up stitches, no sewing yet it is seamless and in one piece.

Babe is a pullover with a special construction.
First both sleeves are worked bottom up and in the round - perfect as a giant swatch ;-) They are extra long with randomly placed stripes for a playful effect. The raglan shaping is worked flat with ‘live’ stitches at both sides. Then stitches are cast on for the back which is worked top down with a stretchy, extra-soft stitch pattern joining to the sleeves as you go until the armhole is reached. The front is worked in the same manner. Then front and back are joined to work the body in the round. A split hem that is longer at the back finishes the body.
Finally, a small rolled neck band is added.
