Starry Nights Bolero

23 stitches and 22 rows = 4 inches
in Star stitch
US 7 - 4.5 mm

This bolero jacket/vest is made from two rectangles. You’ll knit the edging first, as one long rectangle, then seam it together to create a circle. A back panel is picked up and worked, leaving openings for armholes. The motif used for the back panel is Estonian; the edging is a Japanese stitch pattern.

This garment is fitted according to your cross back measurement -- not total bust/chest measurement. Take the time to measure carefully between your shoulder bones to get the proper size.

Color #23 Stormy Skies

Row 1 of chart the 12th st. should be a knit, not a ssk as charted, the 24th sts. should be a knit, not k2tog as charted.
