I am forever trying to steal Matt’s cozy Newcastle Cardigan so I thought I would make up a slightly more feminine boyfriend-style cardigan for myself. The gorgeous green wool is perfectly warm on a cool rainy day and I love that it has all my favorite details – military brass buttons, patch pockets, extra long sleeves and rich brown leather details.
I have a photo gallery and a bit of a tutorial on converting the Newcastle Cardigan menswear pattern into a women’s sweater on my blog.
And, by the way, our Newcastle Cardigan sewing pattern is 20% off this weekend! Check it out at the pattern store and receive the discount by entering the code RAIN upon checkout.
