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.
