This amazing Cowichan sweater was handmade in Canada in the 1990s. It features a stunning geometric design knitted throughout the sweater, and it also has two front pockets and a zipper front closure. Cowichan sweaters are named for the Cowichan First Nations people of British Columbia, who first developed the tradition of knitting these unique sweaters. These traditions can be traced back hundreds of years to when Europe first made contact with the area. Cowichan knitters combined their own traditional knitting methods with European methods to create these incredibly warm and intricate sweaters. The heavy wool typically remains undyed, so the sweaters come in natural sheep colors like brown, gray, and white.
