Jalie Helene Cardigan

A quick show-and-tell today.  This is the Jalie Helene Shawl Collar cardigan, made up in a micro-modal interlock rib featherweight knit from EmmaOneSock.  As previous reviewers have noted, the pockets are cleverly constructed to minimise sewing bulk.


It is a lovely cardigan to wear.  The fabric feels so soft that I used the leftovers to make singlets and undies.  I tried a couple of new patterns; the Style Arc Diana top, and the Megan Nielsen Acacia.  The Diana top has the neckline edges turned under, instead of bound, which is great if you are sewing from scraps and have limited yardage.  The V neckline was a tad too deep for me, but it will make a great singlet.  The Acacia is as comfortable as claimed.  Wins all around.
