New knitting project! Vintage 50's/60's pattern

I'm knitting my Uncle Joe a COLD WEATHER sweater. He's moving up to Washington State soon, and he's elderly. I found a pattern in my old childhood favorite craft primer: McCall's Needlework and Crafts.
I'm using two strands of Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool. This sweater is VERY thick. I am at the point where the raglan armholes need to be  shaped ( and I have both sleeves on the needles together), but I'm concerned the pattern is flawed. More about this later! I'll be back to edit this post with pictures and details.
