Do you have a special, single, skein of yarn that you’ve been reluctant to make socks out of, and are super-keen on making something that you could wear to show it off instead? When I recently inherited some yarn from my sister (which fortuitously turned out to be 100g in weight), I decided to make this!

There are two variations on the pattern - one with a plain stockinette body (the black bolero), and the other with a k1, p1 ribbing (the red bolero).

I think that given some measurements, it should fit almost anyone. If you’re making it for a child, they’d be able to wear it for years to come too. :)

I’ve since updated the pattern. Please download version 2, and feel free to contact me with any questions or errors in the pattern!
