FO: Another Bolero

I knitted one final bolero for milliemanu last year. I posted about the other nine here.

I know I wrote about my dislike for the pattern in my previous post, but I’ve actually gotten used to the pattern. This is probably because I have now knitted it 10 times and because I have amended it to make it flow better.

In the original pattern for example the ribbing for the back and two front pieces is done individually on each of the pieces. Instead I sew it up and then do the ribbing. In my opinion it actually makes it look much better.

Not sure what happened to the colour on this picture, but the blue is more like the two above.

And I still do love the yarn that I use, the DROPS BabyAlpacaSilk. It’s a joy to knit with. I use double strands, so I have to pay attention to picking up both whilst knitting, but it just ends up being an amazingly soft and luxurious finished object.

The ribbing on the sleeves and the bottom has the added picot-esque edging, which took me a while to figure out initially, but now I love it!
