Bolero to Crochet
The Orchid Garden Bolero pattern is now available. Pattern is available in sizes for bust 34”-36” (38”-40”,42”-44”). Bolero is meant to be worn over a garment and is therefore crocheted to be loose-fitting. Pattern instructions include tips on making the bolero in fitted size, as well as detailed photos of work-in-progress.
The bolero is made up of 3 rectangular pieces crocheted sideways. The pieces are then sewn together – at the sides and at the shoulders. The bottom trim is crocheted in rows, followed by the neckline also in rows, and finally the armholes in rounds.
Use DK weight yarn and 4mm hook. You will also need a 1" wide button.
