Bolero with Lace detail
The bolero is made in one piece on a circular needle to the armhole, then divided so fronts and then back are knit separately.
Border is integral to the main body. The sewing involved is on the shoulders, the sleeve seams, attaching the sleeves to the body and the border to the back of the neck. The fastening ties & edging are very simple crochet.
You will need between 3 & 4 100g skeins of Willow Knits worsted weight silk yarn for the project. This is between 600 to 800m. We have added a yarn alternative for a cotton mix bolero - please swatch first to make sure your sizing will be correct. The finished bolero is designed to be not too-tight or too-short and would complement any outfit.
