Linatra Bolero Knitting Kit
An immediately arresting garment, the Linatra Bolero has it all! 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.
The Linatra Bolero is knitted in one piece so, once knitted, gently steam and then wear over a dress or a tunic adding instant style and chic, then party like it’s 1999!
