I'm curious about the actual yardage also. I want to make a single color version. Anyone have any idea? Thanks.

I forgot to ask in my original post, does anyone know the actual yardage used for this sweater, baby and adult?  I want to make a solid color version, it's hard to determine how much you really need since you need 7 separate colors but only use a bit of those first few balls.

It's now posted on the elann site - 8 for children, 15 for adults. Though that's also the same number you'd use for the different colors, so I guess it's not a lot of help.

So it only took me about 9 months to do, but my Pinwheel is done. I started in September, moved in October, had my daughter in December, and just finally picked it up to finish the sleeves last night. My neighbors daughter saw it and it looks like I might be making one in pinks!

I don't know why I never noticed this before.  Quite awhile back I posted a question about a similar sweater I saw in an old IK mag.  Soozeq PM'd me & faxed me a copy but I never got around to making it. 

This pattern seems simpler & I love it!

My question is:  I am fairly sensitive to wools, especially scratchy ones.  Is the Peruvian Highland Wool itchy or is it soft?  I usually have to knit with merino, etc but I love the colors of the yarn that the pattern calls for.

Hi sherry, yeah, this is a little easier a pattern, the main difference is the Vogue has garter stitch and when you change colors the changes are on the outside.

I'm making the adult pinwheel and am using Lion's Woolease. It's the first time I've worked with it and it's quite nice. Not as soft as merino style from knitpicks but not at all itchy. Both of them have quite a lot of colors too.  sue

Sherry71 I made the sweater out of the Peruvian Highland Wool for a baby and she didn't have problems wearing it. The yarn is not as buttery soft as merino but it's not prickly. I also am sensitive to some wools. I also know others that have made these sweaters for babies with no apparent problems as far as itching.. Hope that helps
