I loved the idea of the 1930’s 3 hour sweater too much to concede defeat, so I made another in Berroco Comfort Chunky. I love the Berroco Comfort line of yarns. The name is not a lie.
For this version, I did a solid neckline, but did a staggered rib rather than a straight rib (ie, two rows of k2 p2, then two rows of p2 k2). I started this one before the Acero sweater but ran out of yarn and had to wait to get more, so it feels a little like backtracking in terms of torso length. But some steaming did help.
- Love the yarn! Not at all scratchy.
- This color (dried plum) is much more my taste than the green.
- Still not perfect in the torso length. Grr.
- I have to wear a cami underneath or my bra shows.
Conclusion: I like it! I wore it to work pre-steam, felt a little self-conscious, and kept tugging to pull the hem down. But now it fits much better.
