This bolero is knitted from the top down using The Tailored Sweater Method. No previous knowledge of the method is necessary to knit the bolero, but basic knowledge of how to knit from the top down is very useful with this project.
This bolero is recommended for advanced knitters.

Since the bolero is knitted from the top down, you have more control of the size and yardage than usual. Remember: the pattern instructions are merely guidelines - modifying is warmly recommended! You will find tips for modifying at the end of the pattern.

Note: the yardage stated (320 to 450 yds) is for short sleeved version. You will need an additional 200 yds (180m) of yarn for long sleeves.
