Newcastle Cardigan
by Thread Theory Follow

For men who would like to stay cozy but look stylish - this shawl collar cardigan can look trendy or classic depending on the fabric choice. The sweater is slim fitting with long cuffed sleeves and a flattering fold-over shawl style collar.

This piece sews up quickly in a forgiving knit and features several customizable details such as a shoulder and back yoke (easily included or left out), small or large collar, and decorative top-stitching. Instructions clearly indicate when certain details can be added or removed and contain tips on how to simplify sewing with knits.

This pattern, as part of the Parkland Casualwear Collection, is available for instant download as a PDF!

    Thanks so much! I usually do the photography, but Morgan made me go on the other end of the lens to model, so she gets photo credit! :)

    This rocks. If only I could convince my boyfriend to wear it, I would totally make it. Love it!

    Funny you say that: One of our customers just e-mailed us to tell us that she made it her for her boyfriend, but as soon as she tried it on, she decided it's staying in her wardrobe!

    Thanks so much! With the shawl collar and long sleeves, it really is a cozy sweater for the colder months :)
