Wash's Sweater (aka Big Damn Sweater and The Washburne) is a project of Big Damn Knitters, the Ravelry group for fans of the TV series Firefly and the spin-off movie Serenity.

The goal was to recreate a sweater worn by the character Wash in two of the series episodes -- "Out of Gas" and "The Message."

Variations of the cable pattern were created by Laura Wilson-Martos and Margaret (Maggs) Kailhofer.  Maggs' pattern in particular provided the basis for this pattern.
