Brooklyn Tweed Nehalem


Modern Cowichan Cardigan

Inspired by the beautiful sweaters designed by the Cowichan knitters of Vancouver Island, Nehalem is a shawl-collared Shelter cardigan with bands of geometric colorwork adorning the lower torso. Gentle A-line shaping allows for comfortable layering over fall outfits and the garter-stitch shawl collar, shaped with short rows, folds snugly about the neck. Nehalem is worked with a steek at the center front so you can knit the colorwork in the round. Sleeves are also worked in the round to the underarm; the caps are knit flat and set in. 

 The pattern comes as a heavy-weight paper booklet.  Booklet includes full color photos, pattern schematics, charts, and special technique explanations.
