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.

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.

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 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.
