Bertille hooded Bolero with super long hood, crochet pattern

Filed under: chezPlum Patterns,Crochet — June 22, 2015 @ 11:35 am


Summer is that time of the year when you feel free to wear any cray and fun clothes ! This is the spirit of my “Bertille hooded bolero”. Made for a festive and fun summer with friends and family.

Cropped shape to keep it light for the summer, but with a super long hood just because!

Easy and quick to crochet in one piece from the end of hood down to lower back edge, with a shapely slanted cut in the back.
I made the hood extraaaa long on this one, but you’ll find notes in the pattern to make it shorter super easily.

As usual, pattern is detailed with step by step pictures and tutorials at the end.

Made with aran-weight Magic wool deluxe by Ice yarns: a pretty pure wool gradient single yarn, much softer than Noro Kureyon and with lovely colors. (and doesn’t seem to pill so far)
Gauge: 17 stitches and 8 rows = 4 inches in dc in the front loop (US crochet terms)

You’ll find this pattern on Ravelry, Etsy and Craftsy.

I have just finished another one for my younger daughter (if all goes well, trying to release this also in teen sizes), with contrasting pink bobbles. So many possibilities !!
