Bonnie Bolero knitting pattern
Bonnie is a stunning little bolero jacket with cable edging and central tie. The body is knitted in two pieces, starting from the central back and using short-row shaping to create this fabulous sweep round the front. Not only is Bonnie fun and a quick project to knit, the design includes interesting techniques such as integrating the cable, short row shaping and making use of the direction of the knit to create a better fit.
The 4 page PDF knitting pattern provides complete written instructions and diagram with measurements.
