024 origami bolero 1 -digital download

$7.95

Pattern available as a digital download with 1 other version.

Although this garment looks intricate, it is really a beginner project once the easy lace pattern stitch is mastered. It is worked in three rectangular sections, using two simple textures and several colours. Worn as a bolero it fits snugly around the shoulders, arms and upper back and drapes loosely to the front, side and lower back. This garment may also be work upside down as a fitted cardigan.

Some of the yarns in this garment have since been deleted. Substitute yarns are shown in the volumes list.

Suitable for a beginner Knitter.
