A sweet sweater for multiple seasons and occasions- wear it with just a camisole or a thin T-shirt underneath during spring or fall when the weather is just a bit chilly but too warm for a sweater with a tighter neck opening, or wear it with a turtleneck underneath during winter and the soft merino wool would sure keep your little girl toasty and warm.  The ribbing on top and the heart shape lace pattern lining the bottom edges give it the dress-up feel while the simple shape of the garment keeps it casual.  Pattern offers 2 styles for the neck opening – crocheted collarless edge, or knit rolled edge.
