From Knitting for Baby:  This sweater, which combines multicolored stripes in garter and seed stitch, was inspired by a sweater Kristin saw a young girl wearing Harvard Square. ... [I]t is knit in one piece to the armholes, then divided for the back, left front, and right front. ... To demonstrate the versatility of the knitted fabric, we had this sweater knitted twice, and assembled it in two ways:  one with what is usually considered the "right" side out ..., and the other "wrong" side out....  Teach your children this kind of flexible thinking and perhaps they will be accepted at Harvard.
