B1037 Fifties Cowichan Sweater with Hood

Women’s or teen’s 1950s Cowichan sweater pattern. This bulky knit cardigan has a fantastic geometric yoke design and lots of options for making exactly what you want: pullover or zipper front, pockets, and either a shawl collar or hood. The bold geometric pattern looks great in a neutral palette or with touches of color added. Knits up super quickly and the graph-style pattern is easy to follow. Bonus: matching hat pattern for using up those leftover bits and bobs!
