Child Kuspuk Patterns
Alaskan Children’s Kuspuk Pattern by Lois is a light fabric parka that is worn in Alaska during the summer. Eskimo women make it in bright prints and wear it over their fur parkas in winter to protect the fur. This pattern by Lois is designed so the flounce may be left off during construction of the garment to make a boy’s shorter summer parka or snow shirt. The garment slips over the head and has a front zipper. Almost any type of colorful material may be used, although the fabric should be durable. Decorative braid or rickrack is used to trim the garment.
