This pretty lace crochet bolero is made from a simple rectangle that’s seamed and edged to create sleeves. That makes it a perfect first garment project for beginners!

This piece contains sizing guidance for Girls sizes from 2-4 to 11-12, AND Womens sizes from S/M to XXL/XXL, so you can make one for any size, or two for some mommy and me cuteness!

There are 2 full repeats in 3”, or 12 sts and 8 rows in 3”.

Your yardage will vary with size, but you should be able to complete all but the largest size with 2 skeins of the recommended yarn (around 600 yards.) The largest size will need just a bit more than that.

I was able to complete the 5-6 size with just over half a skein, so around 150-200 yards.
