I knit this jacket in Rio de la Plata as a shop sample for the YS where I work. I immediately wished I hadn't! While it did turn out extremely well, it was also a far more complicated pattern than I thought it would be, and took an assload of seaming. (The seaming alone took me two days, forget about the two months it took me to knit the thing!)

If you're going to knit this, I highly recomment using a safety pin or split-ring marker to mark the right side of the work while you're doing the charts- it's impossible to tell without it, and don't do it in a variegated yarn, you'll want to shoot yourself.

All that said, here are the photos:
