Pinwheel Sweater

So I started the pinwheel sweater by Shelley Mackie for elann.com on March 3rd of this year and obsessively knit on it for 10 days. Very easy to knit. I used wool from my stash. From the center out; mohair&silk ivory, Polwarth handspun by me, Briggs & Little Regal Lilac, Rowan Yarns Soft Lux, Briggs&Little Heritage Pink, Mohair & Silk Multi, Bernat Soy Oatmeal. I changed the border and used Barbara Walker’s Plain Scalloped Edging from her 2nd Treasury of Knitting Patterns. There are 2 ways of wearing this sweater. Wear long with shawl collar or as a bolero with a cowl collar. Thanks to my sister Deb for taking the pictures.

A pattern well worth knitting up.
