Bonnie Bolero Knitting Kit
Bonnie is a stunning little bolero jacket with cable edging and central tie. The body is knitted in two pieces, starting from the central back and using short-row shaping to create this fabulous sweep round the front. Not only is Bonnie fun and a quick project to knit, the design includes interesting techniques such as integrating the cable, short row shaping and making use of the direction of the knit to create a better fit. This piece can be worn on its own or as a two piece with either of our skirts (Gaia or Cleo).
Thank you for such a beautiful design and lovely wool. I have knitted the Alexis gloves but this is my first garment and I was a bit daunted by knitting cable (but have found it really easy). It is a delight to use such quality products. Ruth D,
