Dancing poppies baby bolero, Sylvie Damey, ChezPlum.com, from book "101 one skein crochet projects" 101 one skein crochet projects, with Dancing poppies bolero by Sylvie Damey, http://chezplum.com
Remember that cute little baby bolero, published in the book “101 crochet one-skein wonders” last year ? Well I finally took the time to edit the pattern and add more sizes to it.

This pattern is now available in digital format (PDF) and immediate download, with instructions for 4 BABY SIZES using worsted weight yarn : 3/6 months, 9/12 months, 18 months and 2 years old.
This new version was thoroughly tested, thanks to my wonderful testers !

This baby bolero is worked seamlessly from the top down and has two mesh rows at the bottom leading to a lovely edging of poppies. It closes with pretty crocheted ties rather than buttons.
Since the edging is worked directly around the bolero, there is hardly any finishing at all involved in this project.

Very easy and fast to make, it will make fantastic last minute baby shower gifts… and is an ideal way to use up small amounts of yarns from your stash: You can make a baby bolero with just one hank of Cascade yarns Wool 220 !

Recommended materials: Cascade 220 wool: 1 (2, 2, 2) skeins in cranberry (8415)

Oh, &… want to know the best part ?
If you work this pattern with chunky yarn and a larger hook (as detailed in the sizing notes), you’ll be able to work this little number in KIDS SIZES : 4/6/8/10 years old !! I need to try and make one for my daughters ! :-)
