Heather - Lace Bolero Shrug Knitting Pattern

Not currently available

This bolero was created in Erika Knight’s ‘Vintage Wool’, which is British worsted weight 100% wool.

This knitting pattern is fun and quick, easily memorised and will suit knitters new to lace.  Created as one piece, this cute lace bolero can be knitted in a few evenings in front of the tv, and is perfect for those summer/autumn evenings after the sun has gone down.

The warmth of the wool and the looseness of the stitches create a perfect drape, keeping the shrug soft and cosy, yet allowing the air in so you don’t get too warm.
