Wild Primrose Boléro
by Giulia Bertellli
When I started to work on this design I wanted to create something special for the hotter months. Something to give a twist to a linen dress or something different to wear with a tank top. Wild Primrose is a bolero made with soft baby yak lace used double.
It’s cut pretty short being a bolero, but you can decide to keep working the body motif until you arrive at your desired length. It’s designed to be worn open in the front, but it can easily close with a nice brooch or with wooden buttons.
Wild Primrose is worked from the top down using circular needles and raglan increases. The sleeves are put on hold while you work the body. When you pick up the stitches to make the sleeves you can decide to leave them wide (like a kimono sleeve) or to make them puffy (this means making some decrease).
The stitches used in this pattern are quite simple: knit, purl and a bit of very simple lace using yarn overs.
Each kit contains the yarn you will need to complete your project.
The pattern is not included.
You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry here.
You can also create your own color combination by choosing your skeins.
NOTE: on our baby yak colors, we only dye on the natural basis we have, no bleaching or decoloring so depending on the shade of the natural fiber, each color will vary from season to season, making it darker or lighter. This is the beauty of working with natural fiber and so the shade of the sample you see photographed, not always correspond to the shade we have in stock or at your local LYS.
