Also from Vancouver - Cowachan sweaters
The Cowichan sweater of Vancouver Island
http://blog.ounodesign.com/2009/12/2...couver-island/



Here is one made especially for the Olympics.

These look great. I love the collar (brown) on the sweater the woman is holding.

These sweaters are all unique!! They are one of kind!
It is a shame and sin that these sweaters were allowed to be made in China and sold as 'authentic" Cowichan sweaters.

I totally agree. I'm sick of the Chinese ripoff. I want only an authentic one - or one I "rip off" myself. (It*is* different, isn't it?)

I have a MAJOR attraction to and obsession with organic/natural fibers. Nothing gets me more exciting than seeing these beautiful sweaters knit of entirely natural fibers in their natural colors (cream, brown, gray, etc.) I love that so much attention is being given to the beauty of the natural fibers themselves - by creating so much depth and dimension in a picture with so few colors. I also love that the motifs are typically of natural things as well (animals like moose, etc)

I just got Interweave's Knitting Traditions in the mail today and was pleased as punch to find "Anatomy of a Cowichan Sweater" inside. It makes the price of the magazine well worth it.
