The concept for this cover-up was based on a vintage garment style. However, 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 vintage-looking fan-shaped lace and twisted stitch pattern, self-trimmed edging and optional bead embellishment.
