The Pinwheel sweater is knit in the round and has no seams to sew up when finished! This fast and fun bulky weight version of Shelley’s versatile design was knit by Ann Cannon-Brown. Like the Original Worsted Weight Version, it can be worn by a small baby 6-9 months and will fit this child until about 3-4 years. To fit a small baby, the sweater can be worn with a large collar, which can also double as a hood, as the child grows. When the child is larger, the sweater can be turned around, having a smaller collar and longer body. The long cuffed sleeves are worn rolled for the baby and unrolled as the child grows.

Originally offered by elann.com as a free pattern. Visit international.elann.com to see currently available free patterns.

Over the years elann.com has offered a variety of free patterns to showcase elann brand yarns – this was one of them. As elann’s new site, international.elann.com, develops, many of these longtime favorite designs will be re-formatted and made available for purchase. This will be a time-consuming process, but we hope to accomplish it within the year. 

Throughout this process, on a rotating basis, we’ll be offering new free patterns every month at international.elann.com. They’ll be free for one month, and then subsequently available for purchase as .pdf downloads. We encourage you to visit international.elann.com often to see our latest offerings.
