FO: Williamette Jacket
Went on 10-day mountain trip with DH, and managed to finish up my Williamette Jacket! The hardest part for me was the "applied i-cord" along the front edges, collar and inset pockets. Applied i-cord is a new concept for me...never worked it before...avoided it...

...but as it worked out...now I'm in love with it! I watched a couple of great YouTube videos before we left, and a lady showed an interesting way of adding applied i-cord to the edges of a blanket...and she picked up ALL THE STITCHES along the edge of the blanket FIRST...then worked her applied i-cord off those stitches one by one.

Anyhoo, I'm very happy with the results!

FYI: I had to do the Right Side i-cord band TWICE cuz I placed the buttonslits wrong......and I had to do one of the pocket bands THREE times cuz I kept getting it inside out. It's tricky.

My Ravelry notes, if you'd care to read the details...

I really like this jacket and can see me wearing one.

The I-cord trim gives a nice finished look. I enjoy using it myself.

A great finished item Artlady, but then every item you finish is a work of art.

It's really beautiful, love the color; and of course, your work looks perfect, even if you did have to do parts of it several times. Frogging = perfection!

Lovely jacket!

(Just out of curiosity, are you sure it's not the 'Willamette Jacket?" I live in the Willamette Valley, new people always try to say "William-ette."

Well truthfully it's a mystery! I've got the pattern in front of me, and the printed title is WILLIAMETTE. Like maybe the designer named it after her father, William.

However, at Ravelry, the spelling is WILLAMETTE.

So which is in error??? Which is correct??? I dunno. The reason I go with Williamette is because it, in particular, is what the designer originally typed. I'm thinking someone at Ravelry has misspelled the name (Willamette) in dropping one of the "i"s.
