This week’s show and tell we have an accessory. Valley Yarns #413 Square Bolero is a simple ribbed rectangle that is then seamed.
It is knit in Valley Yarns 2/14 Alpaca Silk Hand Dyed. Gail’s hand dyed colors are fabulous. You only need one skein for this project.
This bolero comes in one size.
“I think the drapey, generous shape of this bolero flatters everyone who wears it. I’d probably wear this all spring and summer long if I had the chance.”
“This garment felt a little awkward to wear. I’m used to wearing more fitted sweaters.”
Height: 5’7 ½”
“This bolero is super lightweight but I’m sure the alpaca/silk yarn gives it some warmth. I can see myself wearing this on a cool spring day. It’s quite comfortable and I didn’t mind the alpaca yarn against my skin.”
“I’m wasn’t super comfortable in this bolero and I think you can tell. I prefer fitted shrugs to something this loose, but I do love the color.”
“This is a nice alternative to a shawl. The sleeves keep it in place and it gives just a little bit of warmth for those overly air conditioned rooms in the summer.”
Next week, we’ll have another Show and Tell from the fall collection!
