Tubey or Hourglass?
I love both sweaters but can only get the yarn for one of them. The yarn I'm getting is a discontinued Joann's brand (Sensations Dolcetto). It's a 50/50 wool/cotton blend and I hope to get it in a lovely blue/gray color.

One concern I have is I am veeerrrryyy long waisted - I normally have to add 2-3 inches to the length of any sweater I make to get it to be hip length.

Which sweater do you think would be best suited to the yarn I'm getting and my figure?

Thanks for indulging me.

ETA I'm also considering the Cameo V-neck pullover.

Here are the links for the sweaters.
