Pinwheel Sweater anyone??
I am going to knit this "Pinwheel Sweater" for my gd. I just ordered all the yarn from Elann. I chose different colors than they did.

I was wondering if anyone wants to join me in a Knig Along?? Here is the sweater.... Its a FREE pattern.

Heh, I started it a coupla weeks ago and am maybe a little more than halfway across the back. Hancock's had a closeout on Woolease in Denim. I bought 6 skeins, but think I may need only 4 or 5. I'm doing it on 10.5s. sue

OH great
How is it coming along? Are you finding the pattern easy to follow.? What size are you making..the adult or the child's?

I've had my eye on this pattern for awhile. I am ready to tackle something "different" and this is it.

I'll let you know when I got my yarn in the mail. I choose purples to light pink for my colors.

Oh the pattern's quite easy. Even though I'm not doing YOs for the increases there's still a pinwheel effect. It's for me and all one color.

I just didn't want YOs; since I'm using 10.5s instead of 8s, they would be too `holey'. So I'm using the KLL increase which is shown on the increases page.

Would this be easy enough for a first garment? I've never knit anything to wear, except a few scarves and my current FT Clogs. Do you think I should try it?

If you can increase, knit in the round and follow directions, it's mostly yards and yards of stockinette. Not difficult at all.

Well, then. Let me check my stash. I think I should have enough. I'm not going to get anything fancy for it since I'm still leary about it turning out decent. Thanks!

Oh great!
Kelly, That would be great if we could "Knit Along" together. I can't start mine until I receive my yarn order. I'll post as soon as it arrives.

Anyone else care to join us??

Kelly, my dd is expecting their second child at the end of November. I believe she's in her 15th week. She can feel the baby moving around. She has a 4yr. old dd and we are all hoping for a boy but we will love ANYONE that God sends us.
