Today we’re looking at 473 Shadow Bolero. It is knit in Valley Yarns Greenwich. In the Valley Yarns Shadow Bolero, it just takes two small seams to turn a rectangle into a curvy, mysterious shape that fits and flatters all sizes and keeps your shoulders warm. The loose gauge plays off the unstructured cable stitch pattern to create spots of opacity on a semi-sheer background.
This project has one size.
A couple of us had trouble with the fit of this bolero and found that we couldn’t keep it on our shoulders. Others thought it fit well, and some suggested adding a clasp to help keep it on. We all agreed that the Greenwich was a super cozy, comfortable yarn!
