I'm working on this jacket. Decided to add more colors to the pattern and have started over a couple of times, but it feels like I'm making some progress. You knit two identical rectangles and stitch them together. I'm still learning how to count rows and can get confused easily so I decided I'd better work on both rectangles at the same time. I have about 8 inches of each side at this point. The finished rectangle will be 50 inches. I plan to begin wearing this in the fall of 2011 although sooner would be nice too.
