I love Cowichan Sweaters – traditional handknit garments of the Native American peoples of Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. Rockaway was inspired by these sweaters’ bold graphic motifs and chunky, cozy nature. Rather than the traditional shawl collar, the addition of a hood and toggles updates the look and makes the garment more layer-friendly. Worked in the round, the cardigan front is opened by way of a traditional cut “steek” – in this way, you never have to work stranded colorwork from the wrong side.


  • Sweater is worked circularly from the bottom up: sleeves and body are worked in three separate pieces and joined together at the underarm. The raglan yoke is worked seamlessly and unifies each of the three pieces.
  • Hood and button bands are picked up and worked last.
