True Vintage 1950s Cowichan Cardigan


Classic Mary Maxim design, ‘Icelandia’.

Hand- knitted at the time in wool, emerald green and cream colourway.

Canadian origin. Chunky, Cowichan design shawl collar, hip pockets and metal ‘YKK’ zip. There is elastic to hem interior.

Cosy and warm enough to wear as a jacket.

A fabulous knit design.


This cardigan is in good condition. Small men’s under arm.




I would estimate this cardigan to best fit a Men’s M, depending on required fit but please look at measurements below:


Pit to Pit 20”

Length 28”

Sleeves (collar to cuff) 30”
