When Rodger Moore from Veregin Saskatchewan heard about the Great Canadian Knitting Tour he suggested I find the oldest sweater in the country. Good idea, I thought, but I think I already know where the oldest sweater is. So here is my challenge to you. Does anyone have an older sweater than this early version of the Cowichan?

Members of the Tsartlip First Nation worked with students at the University of Victoria this past semester to teach and share the basic art form of traditional Coast Salish knitting.
Tsartlip First Nation knitters May Sam, Joni Olsen and Adam Olsen and knitter and author Sylvia Olsen, taught students each week throughout the term and saw the class through completing a project with the class' professor Dr. Andrea Walsh.
