The Linatra Bolero is a combination of garter stitch and stocking stitch, framed by cable edging and fringe, shaped by short rows and finished off with moss stitch and plaits. Impressive for a bolero that is a fairly small project and is ideal for the impatient or easily bored knitter (particularly as Linatra is completed in one piece with no seams at all!).
