Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You'll need to know the basic crochet stitches: how to chain, single-crochet and double-crochet.
  • Any other skill you may need will be explained in the pattern

Pattern Description:

This pattern was first published in the book "101 crochet one-skein wonders", but only in one size (3/6 months). I'm now making it available with added sizes up to 2/3 yo (4 sizes total).

This bolero is worked in one piece from the top down : even the edging is worked directly in the continuity of the main body. That means no seaming, and very few (if any) ends to weave in at the end !

Closes with custom "poppies" ties. No buttons for babies ;-)

This bolero uses very little yarn and is so quick to make: makes it a perfect last minute Baby Shower project !!


NOTE: Pattern for matching baby booties also available in my store (not included in this pattern). Bird pattern also not included ;-)

Permission to sell your finished items. :-)

Gauge:

17 stitches and 8.5 rows = 10 cm (4 inches) in double crochet (US) in front loop
