This is the "Three Hour Sweater", a vintage pattern, and the first sweater I've ever made. I'd say it took me about 16 to 20 hours total, maybe more, over the course of 20 days to get it done.

If I did anything different, I'd make the bottom ribbing slightly longer, the pattern made a modern size 8-10.

Great work!
And congratulations on finishing it.

I have never seen a picture of one of those (reputed-to-be) Three Hour Sweaters knit up.
As Puppy Girl said, it looks to be worth it.

Thanks y'all! I was really pleased with how it turned out, it's just Vanna's Choice yarn in Navy, and a button I had laying around, so I basically got a pretty dang cute sweater that I enjoy wearing for under 12 bucks!

Beautiful! I think this is my favorite of all the Three Hour Sweaters I've seen around the interwebs.
