1930s Knitting - The 3 Hour Sweater

The 3 Hour Sweater

"Fascinating! And most popular. Three hours of knitting and presto —you have a smart garment your friends are sure to admire. The loose stitch progresses so rapidly you'll want to make several — two or three for your own wardrobe and others for gifts."

  1. Love this simple sweater, have had this pattern saved for a while but not yet plucked up the courage to try it! I think it'd take me a lot longer than 3 hours though!

    1. The screenshot image in the post is clickable which enlarges the photo and the full pattern readable is there!

  4. Hello Wendy, am about to try this project and was just reading over the pattern. Are the instructions for the sleeves correct? You start off by only casting on 4 stitches? The sleeves sound like they would be very very skinny and the opening rather impossible to get in through.

    1. Hello Mio, You are knitting the sleeve from the top down so you gradually increase as you work down the arm, I hope this helps!

  5. Hi! I’m wondering what are the finished measurements, I’d love to make this but since I’m not an experienced knitter I don’t know how to adjust the size. I’m a medium or size 10.

    1. Hi Anna, I am not 100 sure, it says a size 16 but it looks to me like it would best fit a size UK 10/12, if that helps!
