mint bolero



There is some background to this project.

This is a popular design from one of last year's books, in fact, the original pattern is meant for children but I followed some other crafters to have it made to fit an adult.

I had this pattern stashed somewhere, not quite willing to work on it until one day, I saw someone wearing a Chanel crochet bolero. Both patterns are so similar except the sleeves were much more elaborate for the designer piece, and since I can never afford a Chanel....the rest is history.

I am very happy with this piece, the color and the fit, is perfect.
