I made this cardi/bolero in summer 2015. I brought this with me everywhere I went, to a theatre, a restaurant, a friend’s house, a museum, etc. It is so light that I just throw it in my purse. When it’s time for washing, pop it in a washer! I wore and washed so many times, it is now so soft like a linen fabric. I just looove linen yarn!

Loose, dry, open, rustic and soft…. The cardi / bolero has everything I want for a spring/summer item.

It is worked from the top down with contiguous shoulders. The loose sleeves have drop stitches for a breezy and airy touch. The cables on the back and the sleeve are subtle yet eye-catching.
