Wonderful!! Did I miss what yarn you used? I'm thinking of knitting my husband a sweater .... No cables for him, but that yarn might be nice.

I used Wool-Ease Chunky in charcoal. It needed to be washable and this worked well. I'm very pleased with how quickly it knit up - but then again anything bulky weight tends to knit up quickly

Very nice Suzie! Dontcha just love that book? I made my DH the Basketcase Jacket...and I loved doing it! Let us know how it finally fit! If the sleeves were picked up at the shoulder area and knit downwards...as was the Basketcase Jacket...you should be able to lengthen or shorten the sleeves easily!

Thanks for sharing your accomplishment! Great job!
