A bolero

I love this bolero. The pattern is from Debble Bliss's book Junior Knits. I used some inherited vintage yarn Patons Beehive Shetland Chunky (Made in Britain). It looks fashionable enough that Ellie got a compliment every time she wore it. I ran out of yarn at the very end so there was not enough yarn for the ribbing at the sleeves. They were a little bit shorter than the pattern. I also wondered how it would turn out had I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran as recommended. Would it be much softer and lighter? So tempted to make another one.

Found this detailed note from another knitter. She did a great job!!! Will go through it before I knit it again.
