A Sweater my Brother In Law

A review of Men's Newcastle Cardigan

The Newcastle has many options for construction – I decided to go with a contrasting yoke and back piece with the shawl collar.

As I was making the sweater for my brother in law, I made a mockup first – which was a good thing, as even though the sweater is drafted for a tall person, my BIL is very tall, and my mockup even had added length in the torso and sleeves and was still too short.
