I love Patti. Really, I do. But my interest in this is fading fast. It's not the pattern as much as it's the endless stockinette with nothing to breakup the monotony.

I can say that I'm certainly making some progress. I'm 6cm away from the garter stitch bust seam. It should be much quicker once I get to that point.

And while I languish plugging away at this back section, I'm toying with the thought of long sleeves. I want this jacket to be as functional as possible, and somehow 3/4 sleeves, while cute and kicky seem a little...frivolous? Maximum wearability points to long sleeves. What do you think? Style or function?
