GAUGE:

13 sc + 16 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

Large hook is used to create an open fabric that will easily stretch to fit a range of sizes.


BOLERO
Ch 138.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across - 137 sc at the end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, working in back loops only, sc in each st across.
Repeat Row 2 until piece measures about 38 in. (96.5 cm) from beginning.
Fasten off.

FINISHING
Fold piece in half to measure 21 x 38 in. (53.5 x 96.5 cm). Place markers on each of the 21 in. (53.5 cm) sides, 7 in. (18 cm) below fold for armholes. Seam sides from armhole marker to lower edge.
Weave in ends.

Easy Crochet Bolero Reviewed by LAURA MICHALAK on 2013-08-27 *****
I made this bolero and it came out long not waist length, I used pound of love like it called for but my customer wanted it waist length and I used more yarn then it called fore to get the 38 inches, I used the j hook like it called for its beautifull but I wanted it shorter, my gauge was on the botton so I don't know what I did wrong.If someone can tell me why mine came out longer then the pattern please, feel free to tell me. Thank you, I want to make more of them I made the schrug already came out perfect.
