I turned half of this:



Into this:



Well, not the baby part, but this doesn't seem like the appropriate place to get into how she was made. Smiley It took just over a week and this pattern is a dream to knit up. There are lots more photos and discussion on my blog.

the yarn looks to be highland wool from www.elann.com and the pattern can also be found there for free (plus many other nice patterns, among some very odd looking ones):

http://secure.elann.com/freepatterns.asp

the above link just takes you to the free pattern page, the direct link to the pinwheel sweater (adult and baby version) is here:

the direct link to the yarn that is used is here:

thanks chloe_hippy. I recognized the pattern as being from elann, but wasn't sure about the yarn.

Awww!! What a cute baby?! And I love the sweater. I've been wanting to try that pattern, but I don't think I've got the skill for it quite yet. lol.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

Thanks for all the compliments.  Cheesy

Yep. Chloe_hippy got it all right.

I used elann.com Peruvian Highland Wool in the following colors: Silver Birch, Dried Herb, New Leaf, Oregano, Lotus Blossom, Grape, Autumn Purple.

If you make the child's version, you could probably make two out of the yarn you're told to purchase for one. You just have to make them in reverse color order.

I made this as part of a KAL and there's more discussion about it here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107748.0 and on my blog.

argh! colours + pattern + baby all fantastic! (and i don't normally really like babies. i hope mine turn out looking like yours. given that both me and the boy are both sandy blondes, somehow i doubt it...)
