GENERAL INFORMATION

Love is the inspiration of this fashionable design. Starting with the fabulous color, going through the big interweaving cable hearts up to the small bunches of lacy elements of this bolero, everything whispers about love. Feel the love every day you wear all those hearts!

CONSTRUCTION

This is a shrug with a super easy construction, leaving the emphasis on the central cables design, adorned with bunches of small lacy heart patterns.
Initially the piece is knitted flat, in a simple rectangular shape. Upon reaching the desired length a wide ribbed border is knitted in the round, joining the top live stitches and cast on edge.

YARN

The pattern is intended for an aran/worsted yarn weight. The model is knitted in Drops Air, making the most of its cloudy ethereal feel. It is highly recommended to also use yarn, providing for good stitch definition.
