3 hour Sweater

Here is my newest sweater.... It is knitted out of 2 strands of Caron Simply Soft yarns...It is modified a bit by lengthening the body a bit so it wont be too short for me...then add more ribbing to sleeves to match up with other ribbing panel areas..so it will be even when sewed up...I also shortened sleeves in stockingette stitch area a bit...I used #9 needles for ribbing and #13 for stockingette so it will fit me perfectly....Love that sweater.. I think i will wear it alot except for summer... it will be too warm for summer cuz of 2 strands of yarns knitted together...Here is a link to the pattern...They are having a knitalong on that vintage pattern-3 Hour sweater at craftster...
