This is a variation of the original raglan sleeve pattern which is knit in the round but has more limited sizing.

Summary: A pullover sweater with drop shoulders, and a pinwheel pattern on the front and back. The pinwheel pattern is worked in the round. The remainder of the sweater is worked back and forth on circular needles. Knitting this pattern is a little like working a puzzle, but it is definitely worth the effort.

Gauge: 20 sts = 4”, 8 rows = 1”
Note: the row gauge is most important in this pinwheel pattern. The number of rows determines the finished width of the pinwheel.

Sizes: Finished chest measurements: 32, 36, 40, 44, 48 inches
Finished length from shoulder: 23, 14.5, 26, 27, 28.5”
