Ribbed Collar Bolero

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

13 sts + 18 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette st (K on RS, p on WS).

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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

PATTERN STITCH
K2, p2 Rib (over a multiple of 4 sts + 2)
Row 1 (RS):
K2, *p2, k2; rep from * to end of row.
Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Rep Row 2 for K2, p2 Rib.

NOTES:

1. Piece is worked as rectangle, then seamed to make the Bolero.
2. Circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth in rows on circular needle as if working on straight needles.


 

BOLERO
Cast on 90 sts.
Work in K2, p2 rib until piece measures about 6 1/2 in. (16.5 cm) from beginning, end with a WS row as the last row you work.
Next Row (RS): Knit.
Continue in St st (k on RS, p on WS) until piece measures about 18 1/2 in. (47 cm) from beg, end with a WS row as the last row you work.
Work in K2, p2 rib until piece measures 25 in. (63.5 cm) from beg.
Bind off in rib.

FINISHING
Fold piece in half, matching cast on edge to bound off edge to make a 12 1/2 x 27 in. (32 x 69 cm) rectangle. On each side, sew edges of ribbed portion together. Unsewn portion above ribbing creates armholes.
Weave in ends.

Ribbed Collar Bolero Reviewed by Diane Seney on 2014-10-12 *****
Super! Comes out very nice! I did make this a tad wider and a tad longer after doing the first according to the directions. But you may want to add a few extra stitches and a few extra rows to make it longer and wider. Also you will need to block the ribbing to be sure it stays straight on you or it will curl up. I blocked this and it worked out much better. It's a VERY cute bolero that is VERY Simple to make. I would DEFINITELY recommend this one to ANY....beginner or experienced knitter!
