Lessons From the Coast: A History of the Cowichan Sweater and the Coast Salish Knitters
 

Widely recognized and seldom understood, the Cowichan sweater is a garment that sits at a confluence of historical influences. Julia Farwell-Clay will trace its origins from the ancient fiber traditions of the indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest to present day popular culture.
