Buy the Men’s Newcastle Cardigan sewing pattern from Thread Theory. For men who would like to stay cosy but look stylish, this cardigan can look trendy or classic depending on the fabric choice. It is slim fitting with long cuffed sleeves and a flattering fold-over shawl style collar. This cardigan sews up quickly in a forgiving knit and features several customisable details, such as a shoulder and back yoke (easily included or left out), small or large collar and decorative topstitching. Instructions clearly indicate when certain details can be added or removed and contain tips on how to simplify sewing with knits.

Suggested fabrics: Medium weight fabrics with a small to moderate amount of stretch. Make sure the fabric isn’t too thick for your machine to handle! Easy to sew: fleece (bamboo, man-made), athletic materials. More challenging to sew: knits (wool, cotton, acrylic blends). // Contrast fabric (variation 1): Thin to medium weight fabrics with some stretch: same as self, stretch denim, stretch suiting. Materials with no stretch, such as leather, could be used for shoulder detail but NOT for back detail (stretch needed for arm movement).
