Sometimes it's knit and sometimes it's crochet.

I used 3 skeins of Microspun and made the Medium. I added a couple of extra rows of the pattern repeats to the front and back portions.

Oh I love it! You did a great job! I like that it is a bit longer!

He wraps Himself in Light, and darkness tries to hide and trembles at His voice... How great is our God!

Yours looks great, white's a good colour on you.  Smiley

I'm making mine longer, too. Not quite sure how much longer yet, probably around to where yours goes to.

Great interpretation of the Short n Sweet! Good for you! Grin

your short n'sweet looks good with the extra length, i made one and was thinking of doing the same thing. i had so much trouble with the pattern that i just didn't feel like picking it up again to work on it again, but i feel a bit of inspiration seeing yours.

I love the length, it looks great as a little cardigan, well done!

I love the way it looks in microspun. This was the first project I made from the book and I worked so hard on it using Sugar N Cream and I've never worn it since it's so bulky. I may try it again someday with microspun. lovely.
