    There are other famous patterns (Knit To Fit and Knit O Graf) that I collect and I even have some actual sweaters knit from these patterns.

    New Mary Maxim. The Hiawatha pattern isn't one I'd be interested in as much as I am interested in a vintage Mary Maxim in that magnificent orange!! ( I didn't have any orange so I am very happy to have such an exceptional example ). It is huge witch I love too. Great for wrapping up in the cold.

    I saw some knitting machines for sale recently and am seriously considering getting one so I can knit up some of the mary maxim patterns I have. I think I'd need a chunky one and an intarsia cartridge though? anyone used one? I can barely hand knit.

    So fabulous. Cute, cute and cute.
    I have to say the sweaters that Linda has here has taught me much.
    I just picked up not one but 2 matching Mary Maxim adult size sweaters.
    Square dancers. I would of never known had I not followed your postings Linda.
    Thanks so much.

    Screen Shot 2017-10-13 at 8.52.30 AM.png I just LOVE these sweaters. The cow sweater I wanted topped $100. Out of my budget.

    Cowichan is a trademarked name, so they should be called curling sweaters, or bulky knit sweaters. Unless they are made by a Cowichan Native (and all made since 1980 have tags of authenticity attached), they aren't Cowichans.

    Hahaha, thanks for pointing out my own advice to me.

    If I were selling these sweaters I would never misrepresent them as Natve. However, it seems no one selling online cares and in order to find sweaters, I am forced to search "cowichan"!

    I love that some person in Montana might have had a prize bull named "curly" and he or she must have had baby blue eyes!!! Edit here, $49.99.
