Beebo is a yummy little gansey style cardi with cushy garter stitch sleeves.  Knit from the top down it is composed of several stacked knit/purl patterns and is virtually seamless.  As handsome on a boy as it is lovely on a girl, this little number could be passed from brother to sister to brother.

Beebo is worked in one piece from the top down. The collar is worked after completing the body and sleeves.
