1930’s Summer Boleros Vintage Knitting Patterns, PDF Instant Download


40 in stock


Two Boleros to knit from the late 1930’s. The first one would look
great with summer dresses and is knitted in a stitch that looks
just like crochet, very firm and close so that it keeps its shape.
The second is a more tailored look worked in stocking stitch with
ribbed borders.

The original yarn used was 3 ply, but this is more likely to be like a
modern 4 ply. Always make tension square to check before
commencing as this is just a suggestion.

The first Bolero is in size 34-36 in. Bust the second 35 in. Bust
