O! Jolly! LLC
My name is Olgalyn Jolly and I’m a designer of knitted textiles and knitwear in New York City. Past work includes heading my own knitwear line and developing stitch patterns for leading fashion designers and retailers. You may have seen my designs in Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor, or your local boutique. I’m on the adjunct faculty at New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology, teaching knitwear design to third year fashion design majors. I also enjoy occasional teaching at the Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn and guest lecturing at various machine knitting guilds.
I’m attracted to and inspired by beautiful fibers. With beautiful yarn and good knit design it’s possible to create the most intricate, textured accessory or a simple, classic garment with an elegant drape. I love the versatility of knits!
My personal mission at the online O! Jolly! Shop is to bring quality and unusual sweater knit fabrics to home sewists and professionals alike. Most of the fabrics are unique to the shop, as I’ve personally sourced the yarns and had the fabrics knitted to my specifications at knitting mills in the New York City area.
If you’re a home sewist and you’d like information on cutting and sewing these fabrics, please read my Crafting Fashion blog, where you’ll find tutorials and pictures of garments sewn with O! Jolly! sweater knits. My online course How to Cut and Sew a Sweater provides more in depth learning. Join the email list for sweater inspiration and to be notified about sales on sweater knit fabric.
