Bertille Bolero, crochet pattern by Sylvie Damey

My daughters have been relentlessly asking for summer boleros with long elf hoods…

Now they each have their own Bertille bolero !!
(but dumb me: I can’t find my own now, so no group photo !)

For the younger one I aimed at making a size 10 yo with fewer body sts and a shorter hood (I took notes, might publish a teen version someday)

For my daughter though, I simply used one size smaller hook (5 mm instead of 5.5 mm) and made a size XS. Worked out perfectly, esp. as the crossover fronts are quite forgiving. That will leave her some room to grow.

I’ve also edited the pattern on Etsy, Craftsy and Ravelry to include those pictures and notes on how the work the contrasting bobbles

So now the only question is: Should I make another one for me ? I’ve already searched everywhere in my office and can’t find it. Bummer.
