This amazing vintage cardigan features a bold geometric pattern throughout. The sweater is knitted in the Cowichan style, recognizable for its signature shawl neck and zipper design. The Cowichan people are a First Nations group indigenous to coastal British Columbia. They invented this unique style of knitting by combining European techniques with their own traditional methods. Authentic or genuine Cowichan sweaters continue to be hand made by the Cowichan according to tradition, but the popularity of the style also lead to Cowichan patterns being sold in local yarn supply stores outside of British Columbia. This sweater features front pockets, cuffable sleeves, and a heavy, wool yarn that's great for keeping out the cold on a windy, winter day.
Fits like a modern unisex adult medium.
