March is cardigan month at Sew My Style headquarters and I thought I’d give both the patterns a shot. I certainly won’t be doing that every month, but cardigans are usually a pretty quick sew and I liked the look of both these longline cardigans. They’re quite similar in many ways, so I reckoned a bit of contrast and comparison might be fun.
Helen’s Closet Blackwood cardigan
Honestly, I’m surprised there are so many people who haven’t made this cardigan from Helen – I think it was her first BIG pattern (although I could be wrong) and it has certainly been roundly lauded in the sewing community. It was time to find out why!
