FO - Pinwheel sweater
I've been reading this forum for a little while now and finally decided to join because I have to show somebody the pinwheel sweater I just finished!

I got the pattern from Elann.com. It's knit in Patons SWS Natural Earth and Natural Blue on size 9 and 8 needles. I used my new Knit Pick Options and they (and the yarn!) were such a dream to knit with!

I made the sweater for a nephew and while he looked super cute in it I failed to get a picture of him! Ah well, thanks for looking!

Ok, I clicked on the square where the pic was supposed to be and copied the link and pasted it in another window and it worked!

Excellent job! Love those colours! Maybe his mom can get a pic for you.

Beautiful! How many balls of SWS did you use? I have this on my list of things to do.

I bought 4 skeins of the SWS (80g) and had a little left over of each color. Took almost exactly one skein of each for the body and then I used the extra for the sleeves and edging. I was so pleased when I did the edges that the shift in colors in the yarn ended up right back at the original color by the time I got all the way around! Couldn't have been more perfect!
