Taken from: Interweave Knits Summer 2018 "Bent's Fort Cardigan" - Established in 1833 in southeastern Colorado, Bent's Old Fort was built to facilitate the buffalo-robe trade between white settlers and the southern Cheyenne and Arapaho Plains Indians. The Bent's Fort Cardigan is both a blanket and cardigan, worked in a deceptively simple mosaic stitch pattern that emulates the Southwestern aesthetic and the architecture of the original fort.
