Oh, I feel for you. That really sucks. Chunky wool is great to knit with but sewing it together is so hard. Maybe you should try the version with the finer wool which I did and the jacket turned out great.

Did you guys use mattress stitch for seaming or just sewd edges together?

I used mattress stitch - for the first time and it worked out great. I am still having big problems sewing in arms to the body parts. I always have a hole somewhere....

Hey.  I started this jacket about a month ago, and just found this thread.  Of course, I have had to put it down for Christmas presents, but I just picked it up again this week.  I am using a Paton's wool blend I got at Michael's.  Usually I try to stay away from anything with acrylic in it, but the color was so perfect I couldn't help myself.

So far I'm done with the back and the two front pieces, and will be starting on the sleeves as soon as I finish this damn blanket for my brother and his new wife.

I'll post pictures when I'm done.

Speaking of, why hasn't anyone who finished this posted pictures of it?

Gah!  I am still on the waiting list to get into Ravelry.  I am so jealous of everyone who has already made it in!  I probably only have a week left, but it is going to be a long week.  It sounds amazing.

I'm thinking of starting this for my first jacket/sweater type project. I have 7 skeins of Cascade 220 100% wool since I bought the pack off my friend who works at Cascade for cheap. And, I didn't want to drop a lot of money on yarn for my first jacket. If I really like it, I'll redo it in really nice yarn, maybe. :] Will this yarn be good?

I just finished knitting the worsted version of this.  It turned out really nice.  Its blocking right now.  I just have to find the right buttons and I'm all set.

Okay...here it is.  Not too bad eh?  I'm happy with it.  I knit it exactly as the pattern describes, except I did pick up extra stitches for the collar.
