My First Make of 2019: Blackwood Cardigan

Friday, January 18, 2019
I've had my eye on making a Blackwood Cardigan by Helen's Closet since the pattern was released and thought this sweater knit leopard print fabric that I've had in my stash for ages (since the dawn of my attempts at sewing) would be perfect; however I had hesitated after having a few nasty experiences with some stretch knits being fiddly and eaten by my machine. But after some recent sewing successes and with the start of the new year, I felt inspired to take on the challenge.

Fabric: Probably from 2009

I stitched up View A in a size Large based on my bust measurement with no alterations. I followed along with the pattern instructions and the Blackwood Sewalong from the Helen's Closet blog and it was a breeze! There may be several more Blackwood cardigans in my future.
