Summer Bolero: Pattern No 9.

Sometimes a little girl needs to look ‘girly’ so here is a pretty cover-up for those summer dresses and tops that sometimes don’t get worn because of our cold and damp British Summer!

The tricky part of a bolero is picking up all the stitches around the edges. We have got round this by sewing on a pretty soft ribbon trim instead, which combined with a firm moss stitch keeps the front edges from rolling up on themselves.

Materials: Double knitting yarn. Knitting needles size 4 mm (UK 6 – USA 8)
Ribbon or an equivalent light trim to roughly go around garment twice for a lightly gathered effect.
