Introducing a brand new pattern release, the Blackwood Cardigan by Helen’s Closet. I was lucky enough to be a tester for this “staple” pattern, and I wear my cardigan alllll the time. Pictured, I paired mine with a rtw turtleneck tucked into my high waisted jeans and booties.

The Blackwood Cardigan comes in two lengths: one hits at the hips, and the longer version hits mid thigh. It’s a great layering piece for every season. I love the narrow front panels that compliment and show off whatever you are layering underneath.

This pattern is super quick to make. I used my serger and finished the whole thing in an evening. I sewed up a size small in the longer length.

This pattern has a fun feature that I really like: the sleeves are made to be longer than your arms so they kind of bunch up around your wrist. It makes this cardi super cozy, I love to pull my long sleeves over my hands when I’m cold.

I used a sandwashed jersey modal knit from Stylish Fabrics. It’s super soft, and mid-light weight, perfect for layering. Stylish Fabric is offering 20% off all orders using code “SARA” at checkout. Rumor has it that they will be restocking the blush color very soon, and I can’t wait to grab some!

Helen is offering 20% off the Blackwood Cardigan Pattern until March 6th. Congrats on another fabulous pattern Helen!

Happy sewing, friends!

  1. Oh I really like that. The length is really good on you. Are you tall? You look kind of tall. I’m 5’6″ and was would like it to hit at about the same spot.
