Join us this winter and knit a Cowichan-inspired sweater.  You can go here to read about the original Coast Salish sweaters. And good news here--a victory for Cowichan Tribe knitters.  We'll be knitting our cardigan in an Aran to Chunky weight wool using a traditional reindeer design or you can substitute a charted design of your choosing.  Sizes range from Small to XXXLarge in this unisex design.  Techniques include fair isle and intarsia knitting, pocket construction, zipper application and seaming/finishing.  Class dates range from November through January (with a break over Christmas) which will give you plenty of time to complete your pieces--knitting homework required! reindeer_600 The Cowichan-Inspired Sweater Time and Dates:   Sunday evenings, 7-9 pm, November 22 and 29, December 3 and 13, January 17 and 24 Instructor:  Jamie  Bowen Cost:  $120 plus materials Materials: Pattern Yarn Suggestions:   Green Mt.
