Newcastle Cardigan Pattern - Thread Theory

For men who would like to stay cozy but look stylish - this shawl collar cardigan can look trendy or classic depending on the fabric choice. The sweater is slim fitting with long cuffed sleeves and a flattering fold-over shawl style collar. This piece sews up quickly in a forgiving knit and features several customizable details such as a shoulder and back yoke (easily included or left out), small or large collar, and decorative top-stitching. Instructions clearly indicate when certain details can be added or removed and contain tips on how to simplify sewing with knits. This pattern, as part of the Parkland Casual Collection, is a modern slim-fitting design with athletic sizing. It is a classic garment that lends itself to creating the perfect casual, hand-made wardrobe for an active lifestyle.

Paper Sewing Pattern Includes: 
1) A tissue copy of the pattern in sizes XS to XL 
2) A 16 page staple bound illustrated instruction booklet (lays flat while sewing!) 
3) An embroidered Thread Theory garment tag 
4) A chip board pattern folder with string closure - simple to use and sturdy enough to store your patterns for years to come


Recommended Fabric

Medium weight fabrics with a small to moderate amount of stretch - make sure that this material 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.

Notions: fusible interfacing for knits (must have stretch), five buttons or toggles.

Note: Materials with no stretch such as leather could be used for shoulder detail but NOT for back detail (stretch needed for arm movement).
