I’ve been looking for a pattern for a bolero to knit up in sport-weight yarn. I’ve got a couple of beauties (top right – Sweaterkits Silk Jewel, bottom right – sitting in my stash, and I’m waiting for the right pattern to scream out at me “THIS ONE!” It hasn’t really happened yet, and I’m beginning to wonder if it ever will, so I’m starting to think of alternatives – what can I knit that I’ll be satisfied with for these two yarns?
I came across one solution: this Bolero by Lene Holme Samsøe. I’ve seen a few completed projects where people used sport weight instead, and I suppose, adjusted their gauge to work. I think I might try that.
