This pattern (some 14 pages of instructions in a total of 20 pages) is not for the faint-hearted. The bolero consists of twenty-four join-as-you-go motifs, each one different.

That said, this pattern is perfect for those who can’t stand crocheting the same motifs over and over to make a garment.

  • Bolero is worked in two sections, front and back. Each section is worked by joining motifs in the final round. Refer to assembly diagram for placement of motifs.
  • In some cases, stitch markers (some 24 removable stitch markers) are used to indicate where motifs are joined. Use different colours of stitch markers to indicate/remember their order when used within a single motif.
  • Front and Back sections are crochet-joined at the side and shoulder seams. Sleeves are worked in rounds around the armholes.
  • It is recommended to work on a wide flat surface.

Gauge:
MOTIF #1 – FRONT = 4”/10cm using hook size 9 (3.5mm)

Note: You can adjust the size of the garment by using a larger hook.
