Romantic Bolero Reviewed by Rosalba on 2012-05-11 *
Pattern poorly written, very misleading, unusable

Romantic Bolero Reviewed by Theresa Kehrer on 2012-01-21 *****
This was the very first crochet garment I ever made. I didn't know how to read a pattern at all. I jumped in and took a leap of blind faith! I knew nothing about raglan shaping, and didn't understand what I was doing at first, but I kept going and it worked out well. I have this project posted on my Ravelry page, and have received many compliments. I am told this is a DC design, and like many of her patterns, it starts with the raglan, top down shaping. If this pattern is difficult for you, an easier one to start with is the Lion Heavenly Bolero Pattern 30034. I have made both and the 30034 is similar shaping but easier to do as a starting project. I like this project very much, it can be made easily in a week of evenings, and it looks special, and fun. I didn't include the beads, but it would be very easy to crochet it with a carry along thread with sequins or beads.

I really liked this pattern. I wouldn't call it easy, like it is rated, but as long as you pay attention to the pattern it works out real nice. I didn't make it with the beads but plan on doing it soon.

This was the fourth garment I ever made. I omitted the beads (I see no way I could get 6 mm pearls onto medium-weight yarn. I can't even get them on size 5 thread!) I omitted the V-shaping at the back for a cropped bolero. I also omitted the sleeves (doing just one row to finish them off) as the sleeves appeared larger/wider than I desired. I've gotten tons of compliments on my finished object.

Romantic Bolero Reviewed by Angela Stamp on 2010-06-01 **
I have to agree with a previous review... I got to row 3 and it didn't look right at all. I thought maybe I messed up, but I redid it and went even further in the design, but it still didn't look right. This pattern is very hard to understand and now I wonder if it was written right. This is a very beautiful design and I was really looking forward to making it, but I think I will call it quits....

I have been crocheting for 30 plus years and could not figure out this pattern! I attempted twice to do this pattern but finally gave up. I would love to make this, it's a beautiful bolero, but I've given up!

Romantic Bolero Reviewed by Jennifer Stroup on 2008-08-03 *****
This was a very simple yet elegant pattern. I made this without the beads for a casual bolero that can be dressed up or down. I was very pleased with the way it turned out.
