Comments:
This move is simply a transition from a horizontal to a vertical plane. When moving from a frontal corkscrew let the outside edge (the part furthest from your body) of the swing draw from pointing out from you, to facing towards the ground. The frontal windmill is just a frontal corkscrew on a vertical plane. When you reach the point where the poi are headed backwards let them fall between the area between your arms and your body. Once you have this technique down then at the point of the frontal windmill perform a pinwheel wrap here. As it exits to your side bring your arms up and to that side as you would for a weave. The frontal windmill is a very nice filler between your switching of sides of the weave. Please reference the video provided below for a demonstration of using the pinwheel wrap in this move. Also keep in mind that the frontal windmill makes for a very nice transitional move when switching directions of your weave.
