March 6, 2012 - thanks so much to madebykate, this sweater is now translated into an Italian pdf! Note that the English version is still on the blog.
The pinwheel part is hard to see in the first two pics, so I added the third. Now it’s clear as day!
I used about 7 skeins of this yarn. The package says it’s a 2 or fine weight yarn. Ravelry has it listed as a sport weight. I would say it’s somewhere in between. I used an H hook to increase the drapeyness, but you could make it tighter with a smaller hook.
This is just a tutorial, not an actual pattern. I hope you enjoy it and can’t wait to see some photos!
