This has been a project I’ve wanted to do for a long time. It’s hard to find patterns to make Cowichan items, and the good ones are the really dated ones. I found the pattern for this vest “Adult Vest #201” by White Buffalo at Wet Coast Wools. Unlike my last cowichan sweater, I didn’t use buffalo wool although it wasn’t for lack of trying. It is so hard to find now! Instead, I used Custom Woolen Mills Prairie Wool, which is also six-stranded and feels almost just the same.
I used three colours instead of two, and I’m so happy with how it turned out.
