hey, I'm starting this this week, anyone wanna join in? I think I'll do it with a lot of ribbing, or longer in the waist.  haven't totally decided yet though

I got the back done, it took about 3 hours. maybe this'll be a 3 hour per piece sweater for me?

anyone else joining in?

well, I'm done! that was a quick knit.  I still need to crochet the edge and add a button though.  I'll add pics when it's totally finished.  it took well over 3 hours, but I'd say it was about 10 hours.  so really still a quick sweater! 
I pretty much followed the pattern, added 2" of ribbing, and changed to #11 needles for the yolk, but that was it.  it's cute, but I think I need just the right skirt to go with it.  lol guess it's time to go shopping huh? hehe  anyway, if anyone else is working on this please share! Smiley
happy knitting

mooshie congrats on finishing it! i can't wait to see a finished picture of your sweater.  i'm considering making this, but i've got a few other projects to finish up with first.

So, I was wondering if you ever figured out the gauge for the 1930s three-hour sweater.  I have this pattern and have played with it unsuccessfully; but I'd really like to know what size yours came out to be and what your gauge modifications were.  Thanks.

I made this sweater in both the original 1930s version (I too had problems with the gauge, it turned out to big. It's wearable but not great) as well as the modern re-worked version, of which the pattern was so kindly posted on this forum by the creator of it (thanks!!!). The modern one turned out much better... pics of both can be seen on my blog, in this post: http://woollymammothknits.wordpress.com/2008/05/18/my-first-few-knittings/

there's a "modern" version of this pattern?  I must've missed it somewhere.  does anyone know what page it's posted on, or what post # it is or something?  or even who posted it?  while my sweater came out ok, I still haven't posted pics of it yet because I have yet to put the crochet edge and button on it.  I haven't worn it yet either.  the only changes I made were to make the ribbing longer since a lot of people were saying that the sweater was pretty short.  I'll have to finish it and post pics though.

Hey Guys,

I'd love to try this, but can anyone tell me how many stitches I'd want to cast on using a dk weight yarn for a 40" bust? Or reccomended needle sizing? As you can see, I'm a very new knitter, and this looks like a great first sweater. Any help would be appreciated.
