My #cosycardichallenge entry – Blackwood Cardigan

My #cosycardichallenge entry – Blackwood Cardigan

The #cosycardichallenge has been organised by Amanda of I Sew A Lot, and The Stitch Sisters. You can find more about the challenge here.


I chose to sew the Blackwood Cardigan by Helen’s Closet with our Blue and Cream Textured Cotton Boucle . This pattern was a dream to sew and it came together beautifully. I cut it out one Friday night and by the following Saturday I had a finished cardigan – this is quite an achievement for me as i’m normally a fairly slow sewer and I have limited time to sew around our little boy. I made it  one size bigger than my measurements as this fabric doesn’t have as much stretch as the pattern recommends.

This fabric is quite thick so I didn’t add the pockets as I thought they might be a little bulky.

I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I think it can be casual with jeans and trainers, and also dressed up with heels. I will definitely be making some more Blackwood Cardigans!
