I love Jalie patterns. They're well drafted, stylish, and the fit is fabulous. I'm pretty late to the party for this one--Jalie 2921, the "Scarf-Collar Top." I believe it came out in 2009 and has a zillion reviews on Pattern Review. I've had the pattern for awhile, and as is my wont, I've let it age in my pattern drawer for far too long.
This is made from a mystery knit from my stash--a crepe jersey from who-knows-where in petal pink. (The color in the photos is not accurate, but it's the best I could get.) I cut a size "U" and added 1-1/2" to the length. I also stabilized the shoulders with scraps of interfacing. The seams were serged and the hems were done on my coverstitch. I had intended to tie the scarf in a bow, but my fabric is a little too heavy. My next iteration will be in something light and slinky.
As many others have noted, the burrito collar technique is quite something. I couldn't fathom how it could work, but it did! So, if you're making this for the first time and have some, uh, issues with spatial thinking like moi, just follow the directions and have faith!
Happy sewing! ~ Peggy
