Announcement   Cowichan Sweater Knitting Patterns including White Buffalo & Chinook Winter Sweater Knitting Patterns. Please note the patterns listed in this store have been watermarked.
These sweaters made from pure unspun wool are truly a Canadian Symbol and recognized the world over.

We called them Buffalo sweaters because of the Buffalo Brand yarn used to make them, which was in fact not buffalo fiber at all but sheep's wool. These sweaters are also referred to as Indian, Siwash, Mary Maxim sweaters, the original iconic sweater was developed by the Coast Salish people in the early 1900's and is now known as the Cowichan Sweater.

Authentic Cowichan Sweaters are produced by Canada's West Coast Salish Natives in the Cowichan Valley.

The women of the Coast Salish learned how to knit and adapted their experience with the heritage of Fair Isle and Noridc knitting to create their own unique designs. They made practical sweaters incorporating designs that were familiar to them.

These sweaters were once used for fishermen, loggers and hunters. These symbols remain today as some of the most popular designs made with White Buffalo yarn.

I hope you enjoy these traditional native motif sweaters.

Hello! Welcome to Kilbella Vintage. Please read the sections carefully before purchasing. If you have any questions send me a message and I will alway try to answer asap.

Feel free to sell your finished creations. Sharing or selling any of my PDF patterns in part or whole is not allowed.
The shops vintage PDF patterns in Kilbella Vintage on Etsy & Etsy Studio have been reworked personaly by me. These patterns come straight from my collection of vintage crochet / knitting/ that I have been collecting for over 15 years. If there is an issue with any missing details in the pattern, contact me and I can check the original and get back with the information. The hard part is some of these old vintage patterns do not always have information we see in new patterns.
If this is the case I generally mention in the listing that gauge is not listed etc.

Due to certain issues - all the Shops PDF patterns have now been watermarked. The watermark is very faint and does not affect the pattern in anyway. Having to go back and watermark these vintage PDF patterns was massive hours of work, I wish it wasn't necessary but unfortunately it has become an issue for a lot of shop owners.
Hope you enjoy shopping with us.
