FO’s: 9 Boleros

Earlier this year, in June, Milliemanu ordered some boleros from me.

I used this Sirdar pattern as a basis, but then made some pretty major amends to it. I have to say, I know why I like the DROPS patterns, they are just so well written, this one wasn’t at all.

DROPS like to make their patterns easy and without too much seaming, but this was the opposite. However, changing it to how I liked it, made it much more enjoyable.

I used double strands of DROPS BabyAlpacaSilk,. which made it a gorgeously soft and scrumptious finished object. So, here are pictures of the nine boleros.

Bolero One

Bolero Two

Bolero Three

Bolero Four

Bolero Five

Bolero Six

Bolero Seven

Bolero Eight

  1. oh these are beautiful!!
    the little picot trim on the ribbing is the perfect touch!

  2. Ha! I think Sirdar patterns are a love ’em or hate ’em kind of thing. From reading on Ravelry, I think the DROPS patterns cause similar feelings. 🙂 I used to dislike Sirdar patterns for the same reasons as you, but they’re well-written and have some lovely styles for small people, so I’ve grown to like knitting them these past couple of years. The boleros are lovely and I am in awe of you knitting the same thing nine times over without tearing your hair out!

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