Falesia Outfits

Hello! I haven’t written a proper post in so long here (apart from the article on my Hinterland dress that I just posted), so I decided to make up for it by posting about the Falesia cardigan I knit in July, along with a bunch of dresses that just went so well with it that I couldn’t pick just one to model the cardi. I am going to add the details of each dress for easy reference.

First, though, let us talk about the cardigan!

Falesia by Atelier Émilie

Falesia is a design by Atelier Émilie. Its is a fingering weight, cropped, top-down cardigan that has a lacy raglan. The pattern is available in English and French.

Yarn: I used organic white cotton, Rainbow Organic 8/4 from Hobbii yarns. This organic cotton, fingering yarn was sent to me for honest review, and at 3 euro per 50-gram ball, it is a lovely sustainable organic option. It has a soft touch and great stitch definition.

Buttons: I wanted this project to be sustainable down to its tiniest details, so while I knew I wanted translucid white buttons, I didn’t feel like purchasing new ones in plastic. I found a lovely Etsy shop located in France that sold vintage haberdashery, and they had the perfect vintage buttons in stock!

Knitting process: Falesia is a joy to knit thanks to the engaging raglan increases; because it is cropped with 3/4 sleeves, once the fun raglan is done, the rest of the cardigan knits up quickly! I especially love the finishing touches to this cardigan, the continuous neck and buttonband with i-cord edging, and the deep 1×1 ribbing at the bottom hem.

It even got quite silly at the end!
