I've attached the right front! Smiley  I've used up 1 skein of Cascade 220 so far, partially used from 2 skeins (nature of the shaping).  I have 5 skeins total, but that's more than enough.  I'm wondering if I can get away with using 4.

I have about 2.5 more repeats before the bind off before the sleeve. I think I'd like to try the 3-needle bind-off for this seam, see if I can't make life easier. 

I'm having fun with this pattern. Smiley

Finished the second sleeve, seamed the other side (the 3-needle bind-off worked like a charm) and have picked up 196 sts on the bottom edge to do a 2x2 rib (not worth the hassle of doing the adjustments for the pattern).

I'm going to make shrinky dink buttons! Cheesy Thanks to Firefairy for the suggestion/reminder! (If you haven't seen cool shrinky dink buttons before, check out: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=159583.0!)

Found some buttons (eclectic collection of the sort meant to replace lost buttons).

More pics on blog.  Ended up using almost 3.5 skeins of Cascade 220 on US 7 & 8.  This I customized to fit me, so it's in no way indicative of how much would be used for the 36" size.

Wow, it looks great! I love it. Mine's on the backburner as my needle is still broken. I was supposed to mail it to the company to get a new one, but now I don't know what happened to the envelope it was in. :-(

That's a bummer.  I'm sure they'd accept it in whatever envelope if you write a note!  (hopefully they know their own needles!)

Oh, well the problem is that the needle was in the envelope! :-(

This is such a cute jacket!  I'm putting it on the to-do list.
If anyone is interested in the pattern, but can't get it, there is a very similar jacket on Garnstudio's website.  Here's the link:
