Saw this pattern and thought what a great idea. A quilted jacket with knitted sleeves. Combine the best of both my hobbies. Well in theory, it sounds good. But actually following this pattern was a pain. The directions for the knitted sleeves were wrong. After doing the top of the sleeve three times, I realized that it's not me, it's the pattern. I contacted the designer and asked her what it should be and was told she didn't do the sleeves. :( Lordy. The pattern called for you to use a sweateshirt one size up from what you normally wear. I normally wear a Large (12 to 14 ladies) so I played it safe and went up two sizes to a mens XXL. Well after constructing the quilted center out of lovely Moda fabrics, I could not get the fronts to meet (and trust me the girls are not that big). So I am now trying to figure out what to do with the too small quilted body and the sleeves. I decided to cut the sleeves off of an old denim jacket and put the knitted sleeves into it. If it's horrible, it's not a big deal, I never wore the jacket much anyway. Here are the sleeves. Knitted with two strands of yarn together. I used one cotton yarn mixed with an acryllic blend. Lesson learned: I could write patterns.
