Bolero is meant to be worn over a garment and is therefore crocheted to be loose-fitting.

Pattern instructions include tips on making the bolero in fitted size, as well as detailed photos of work-in-progress.

The bolero is made up of 3 rectangular pieces crocheted sideways. The pieces are then sewn together – at the sides and at the shoulders. The bottom trim is crocheted in rows, followed by the neckline also in rows, and finally the armholes in rounds.
