Sweet n’ Sassy was designed for my two daughters who are both perfectly different and perfectly wonderful. My oldest is a sweet, caring, thoughtful, and sensitive child who adores sentimental gifts and pretty girly things. My youngest is a wild and crazy sassy pants who loves superheroes and always has a smile, a giggle, and a joke. This sweater is a combination of what I interpret their personality traits to look like in knitted form: sweet lace and sassy stripes. A simple stockinette body is edged with delicate picot trim, a contrasting inner hem, and finished with a circular yoke.
