The Cowichan Sweater (2 days)

Knitting
February 2016
Aran (8 wpi) ?
US 7 - 4.5 mm
300 - 400 yards (274 - 366 m)

This is a sampler sweater for my 2 day Cowichan Sweater workshop. It includes pockets with liners, several 2-color motifs (which the students can choose themselves or work from a fixed chart), shoulders shaped with short rows, a traditional Salish shoulder join, a three part collar joined with short rows, sleeves with short row shaped caps, and putting in a zipper or a button band.

I also talk about yarn dominance, stranding 2 colors (right side and wrong side) in the right hand, the left hand, or both hands, weaving in each of those styles (right side and wrong side), and designing.

It’s a full 2 days!
