Valley Yarns 413 Square Bolero
Square Bolero has a flowing shape that’s brilliant in its simplicity—a simple ribbed rectangle with two small seams at the sides. Working with lace weight yarn held double is an easy treat that also blends the hand-dyed colors. Valley Yarns 2/14 Alpaca Silk is soft and silky with a slight halo from the alpaca that is wonderful to work with and lightweight yet warm when worn.
