Thanks for your nice comments!  Smiley

English is not my first language. Can someone tell me the differens between needlepoint and embroidery for example?

Hello friends.

I did take much more than 3 hours but that is the original models name. I haven't heard of anyone who knitted it that fast. The description is here:
You can also find it on Ravelry,"3-hour sweater".

The pink yarn is Wendy, Cotton Aran and the green is Garnstudio Drops, Muskat. All cotton.

My mods were: a different yarn, a different gauge, deeper button opening, raglan construction instead of sewn in sleeves, increases in the lower rib to make room for hip.
Maybe it's more correct to say that the above model was a inspiration. Tongue

Happy knitting!

I made these for my coworker. It's polyester fleece with embroidery with cottonyarn.  I don't do embroidery very often but I think I should because it's so fun  Smiley . I made the pattern up as I went along.

Thanks for looking!

I modified a pattern I found through Ravelry. It's called 3-hour sweater. The result is this:

I'm very pleased.
Thanks for looking.

Thanks a lot for your nice comments. Smiley
The yarn is called Milano and the brand is Hjertegarn. I bought it at a LYS. It's easy to find in Sweden at the moment, but in the rest of the world? I don't know.

This yarn is called Milano (eng: Milan). There fore Milano hat.
I think I like it.....The weather is still not very cold here so I haven't had the opportunity to use it yet.
When i was done with the base shape I didn't like it so I put a thread through one side of the hat and pulled it together a Little. I also put a bow (right word?) there.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Raglan sweater with structure from Strikk on: October 26, 2008 01:54:25 AM
I've made this 'fury' thing. Im very happy with it but maybe I will felt it just a liiiiittle to make the fibers stay in the sweater and not on all my other garments, floors, bed.....
The yarn is Eskimo from Drops and the pattern is from the shop Strikk in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The description called for another yarn, Natur Ull, but I really liked this green colour so I used Eskimo. Maybe the sweater would have been 'more stabel in shape' with the original yarn...and that would have been good.
