Soduko Contest: Jalie 3353
I wasn’t feeling the bravery that I needed to attempt my Jalie Eleonore pants, so I made Jalie 3352 instead. This sweater will count as an accessory in the PR Wardrobe Soduko Contest.
The fabric is a chunky wool knit that I bought from Mood. It’s much softer and lighter than it looks, and it has a slight stretch that works for this cardigan. I bought it because it kind of matches a wool tweed that I plan to use for a skirt. We’ll see if they really do match once I finish the skirt!!
I’ve made this pattern two times before, and both times I increased the length. This time I did it again. I cut a size S and added 10 inches to the length. I also increased the width of the band that finishes the edges and added cuffs. The knit is fuzzy and frays pretty easily, so I serged the whole thing. I ended up taking in the side seams about two inches on each side because the cardigan was swallowing me. I wanted it big, but not that big.
Y’all, this pattern is so easy, and it makes the coolest long cardigan. Seriously, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Jalie rocks!!
Louise wants a cocoon cardigan too!
