Herringbone jacket - at last

Some of you may remember the nightmare I was having a few months ago with the Herringbone Jacket I was knitting for my other half from 'Classic Knits for Men'. Well, it's done and here are a few pics.

Now that's a GREAT jacket. 1/2 looks amazing with that. Good one David!

Great job. Did you knit it from the bottom up? I'm trying to figure out how you did the button bands.

David, the jacket looks great, well worth all the trouble it caused you.

Have been knitting for years. I knit continually then will try another craft, but will return to the needles.

It's a great jacket and it looks well worth the frustrating times you had knitting it.

Looks great and comfortable too - and I love details like the red buttonholes.
