The sweater is knit in one piece from the bottom up.
You don't have to make this pattern into a watermelon. If you'd rather, you could knit it using one color which would give it an entirely different look.
I know that this is going to be such a great springtime sweater for my little one. The colors are vibrant for the season and the cotton is ideal for springtime evenings.
