Knitting pattern - Biscotte's Pinwheel
The Pinwheel is worked in the round starting from the center and increasing 8 sts on every odd rounds. Since the beginning of the work is very small, you may want to start on double-pointed needles. You can also work with circular needles using the magic loop method. If you use double-pointed needles, also plan a circular needle to cover the increasing girth of your pinwheel.
Except for the marker that identifies the beginning of each rounds, the use of the other stitch markers is not mandatory: once you understand the sequences of increases, the markers may seem less practical.
This pattern is written “one size” as you can adapt it to all sizes and physiognomy. For your information, you will find details of the model from the picture at the end of the pattern.
You will need
- Biscotte Yarns – Griffon (details at the end of pattern)
- Circular needles (and dpn needles, if needed) size US#10 (6-mm) Choose the longest cable available (I used interchangeable Chiaogoo needles with cable connector to join two lengths of cable together towards the end of the work).
- 8 stitch markers (use one distinct marker to identify the beginning of rounds).
This is in my next to do pile. But I am looking forward to completing this.
I bought two packs of bin end stripes sock yarns, and they arrived safe and sound, although it was difficult to track them as I’m not on FB.
The yarns are beautifully soft and are all wound now. I’m currently using a variegated blue/grey as a cuff for a pair of over the knee socks, and it’s great.
My only gripe is the ridiculous import and vat taxes that I had to pay for them to come into the . It added an extra £16.50 to my order, which negated the savings I’d made on the offer, so sadly I won’t be buying from the US again.
I have not made this garment as the design is quite dated, not an up to date design. Sorry..
