Is it strange that this pattern made me smile? This fun motif looks like two sassy X’s stacked on top of each other. When I told that to a friend she laughed and showed me a picture of her sassy little niece, proudly standing with a hand on her hip, the other raised in the air, and her foot kick out in ta-da pose. She was the personification of this sassy little X.

The motif has an interesting heavy and light feel. By mixing groups of three threads and single threads the pattern creates motion and depth. This could be useful in designing a more pictorial type of designs.

Day 27 comes from Inkle Weaving by Helene Bress, page 124 (194i). Until next time, go be sassy!
