When I was younger, I had a sweater wheel that was a three ring circle. You put in the size of the sweater, I think the weight of the yarn and it gave you sweater instructions.

It has been lost to years of moving. Does anyone know about available sweater wheels? I think I ordered it from Mary Maxim yarn.

Twenty or more years out of production. But if you search for sweater pattern generators, you'll find some. These are the one's I've collected ... so far.

I have been looking for sweater wheel myself for sometime, I have just about given up on purchasing one.

You can go to www.knittingfool.com I have done that.

Also sometimes I have seen some on ebay that you can
bid on. I would have loved to bid on them but I am disabled and on a fix income.

I am going to still keep my eye out for one cause I would love to have one.

I inherited two wheels, one for sweaters with set in sleeves and one for raglan sleeve sweaters. I feel lucky to have them.

Wish I could be so lucky. But if I didn't have any bad luck I wouldn't have any luck at all.

Never heard of a sweater wheel, the first thing I have learned today.

Then you didn't hang out at yarn shops in North America in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. I saw them, handled them, but only had money for yarn or them; I got yarn.

I should have checked classifieds to get my sweater wheel I paid $60 but when I received it today and saw the original price I was sick,was it worth it? YES, and it will save me hours of pattern hunting and I have stitch pattern books... :-)
