Buy the Blackwood Cardigan sewing pattern from Helen’s Closet. The Blackwood Cardigan is a cosy and versatile addition to your wardrobe. Designed with layering in mind, it has minimal excess fabric in the front and a close fit around the neck and shoulders. Its fitted shape and extra long sleeves make it perfect for wearing under jackets and vests, while also looking stylish over tank tops and dresses. View B ends at the hips, while View A extends down to the mid-thigh and includes patch pockets at hand level. The Blackwood is intended to be worn open and is not designed to close at the front.

What we think: The proof is in the pudding with this pattern. It’s been made up by so many members of the community. It’s really versatile in terms of what you can wear it with and using different weight jerseys can transform its look.

Suggested fabrics: Light to medium weight knit fabrics with at least 40% stretch widthwise and 20% stretch lengthwise. Try a cosy sweater knit or french terry for a warm layer or make it in jersey for a lightweight cover-up.

    5 out of 5 My First Blackwood Cardigan

    ErinVanHandel

    The Blackwood cardigan is worthy of the hype! It’s fun to sew and wear. I think it’s a great project for a sewist new to knits, and there’s enough going on to satisfy an experienced seamstress.

    I love how the edges are finished with bands, and I especially adore the extra-long sleeves. This particular cardi is made with Merino wool, and I vigorously endorse this fabric for the Blackwood.

    5 out of 5 A quick sew

    KathleenM

    It is so simple to put together, it’s such a quick sew. I managed to make 2 in an afternoon.
    I used loose knit fabrics to really make it feel like a cardigan.
    The only alteration I made was to take in the cuffs by 3/4″
    I would recommend using a walking foot attachment when doing the pockets, I didn’t and my pockets had to be redone a couple of times to get them just right without bunching or stretching

    4 out of 5 Blackwood cardigan cropped version

    sewingalacarte

    I used a knitted bouclé fabric to make my version of the Blackwood cardigan and made size S. The sleeves are shorter. I also skipped the cuffs and bands.
    Although a lot of makers found the sleeves narrow the size for me is perfect.
    The bouclé fabric was easy to sew with some extra intention like basting and pinning both fabric pieces together to keep them in place.
    My cardigan has flat seams that are finished with a locker first. The sleeves are set in after closing the side and sleeves seams. More photo’s of this make can be found here: http://www.sewingalacarte.nl/2019/03/knitted-boucle-blackwood-cardigan/

    Loved this make. It’s versatile in your wardrobe and very straight forward to make so great for a beginner who is ready to get stuck into jersey.

    Blackwood Cardigan

    lisatoronto

    This is a great pattern! The cardi has beautiful long lines, and the neck band lies nice and flat. The arms are quite narrow, so I would be aware of that when choosing a size. I made the medium. The cardigan is meant to be worn open, so it doesn’t have closures or wrap around you. This took some getting used to, but now I love the look!

    I made my first blackwood using a thick and very soft ponte knit! I made it in no time, the instructions were great and it fits like a glove, no alterations needed!
