It fits you nicely. I think this is the best Short N Sweet I've seen. Good job!

thank you! I wasn't sure about the color because I normally don't like myself in red, but I also wanted to try something a little different. I'm happy with the result  Smiley

Thanks! I've actually been looking for other versions of this because I'm curious to see how other people used the pattern. Do you remember where you saw it?

Definitely the best example I've seen so far of Short N Sweet. I've been wanting to try the pattern but have been hesitating, but if it's possible to make in three days, maybe I should work up the nerve. :-) . It looks great on you, and red was a perfect choice. Thanks for sharing!

Wow! I have just been on Amazon ordering The Happy Hooker so I can make myself one. If it turns out even half as fab as yours I will be very happy.
You look great. Ooh roll on Tuesday...

I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Thankfully the pattern works up quickly lol. One thing you may want to watch out for is the pattern gets confusing when you start the right front piece. I was so confused I posted here and googled the problem. Sure enough, it has been re-explained by the author. Just google something along the lines of "Short n Sweet crochet pattern problem" and you should be able to find the website. Sorry I didn't bookmark it  Sad but I'm sure you'll find it. Can't wait to see what you make!  Cheesy

There is a board called "Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller" (or something like that). Just search Short N Sweet on that board.
