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.
I just got this Knit O Graf sweater. In a big size!
Based on this Knit O Graf pattern.
I would love to find that astronaut sweater! ! And they have a pixie sweater too!
These are so much fun to look at!
Love the cow, bagpiper and the rocket ship!
I found this on Ebay.
The front. I had never seen this pattern, Mary Maxim , knit before.
So adorable. 3 Little Pigs.
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.
Aww, that is so great to hear. What colour are your square dancers? I love that pattern.
They have the red shoulders. I will try to add a photo later.
His and hers I think.
Beside myself with happiness! I found one of my all time favourite sweater patterns!!!
Oh, this is so cute!
Amanda got me looking for "cow cowichans" (edit) and I found this fantastic 'Beef' Mary Maxim raglan in baby blue. AND it was "curly"!!!
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.
