Pattern Description:

Inspired by the hug-me-tight vintage garment style, this design is updated with a modern-day relaxed fit and easy-knitting circular construction.

This clever wrap begins simply as a large piece of circular knitting. The magic is in the unique way of binding off to create a semi-fitted short jacket with rounded hemline. The result is similar to a bolero, except with a more feminine look, a softer shape and short sleeves.

The design features a lovely fan-shaped lace and twisted stitch pattern, self-trimmed edging and a touch of beads to complete the understated look of this gracious garment.


One lace pattern stitch multiple measures 4" wide; 32 rnds in lace pattern stitch give 4" in length.
Note: The lace pattern stitch multiple varies between 20 and 26 stitches.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • petite/small, medium/large and extra-large


  • 605 (785, 985) yards lace or light fingering weight yarn
  • US 5 (3.75 mm) circular knitting needle or size needed to obtain gauge, 32 - 40" length

You Will Also Need:

  • 200 (242, 288) size 6/0 (4 mm diameter) glass seed beads, approximately 17 (20, 24) g
  • An extra knitting needle in each of sizes US 4 (3.5 mm) and US 5 (3.75 mm) for binding off sleeves and joining the back seam.
  • crochet hook that is small enough to fit through holes in the beads
  • Split eye or flexible eye needle to string beads.
