Child's Pinwheel Sweater

I started this sweater last Saturday & finished it on Wednesday evening. It is made from the wool from my sheep which was millspun by Zeilinger Wool Co. in Mi. I dyed the wool.
The pattern is some what different than most in that it fits a 6-9 month old baby by turning it so the sleeves are closer to the bottom, rolling up the sleeves & the excess at the top acts as a hood much like a bunting. When the child is older you use it as shown, with sleeves closer to top, unroll sleeves & the shorter top part is a collar.
