Product Details

The fourth pattern in our Designer In Residence series is The Motif Bolero by Doris Chan! It's a little open-front jacket that's uniquely constructed from granny-style motifs that have been updated with open stitch rounds for a lacy look and beautiful drape. Crocheted in two shades of Valley Yarns Charlemont, a lovely sock/fingering weight blend of superwash Merino wool and silk, the color sequence tends to emphasize the geometry of the motifs. For a less patchwork look, go with a single shade. On the other hand, you may certainly devise your own colorways using more shades!

Fitting Notes: For a comfortable, more relaxed layer choose a size that is 2” or so larger than your bust measurement. For a more body-conscious fit, choose a size that is close to or slightly less than your bust measurement. This bolero does not have to close nor is it designed to overlap at the fronts. If you choose a size with ample ease, then you can add closures to the fronts if desired, or even cross wrap and secure the fronts at the waist.
