New pattern - the No Sew Bolero
Feb 25, 2021
It really is no sew apart from weaving in ends.
The body is knitted in one piece to the armholes and the shoulders are joined using a three needle cast off.
The sleeve stitches are picked up round the armhole and then shaped using short rows.
Finally, the lace edgings are added using a knit on technique.
The brief was for a garment with less common construction so I set out to create something without sewn seams but which wasn't a yoked sweater or a top down raglan.
It was a fun challenge and I think the result is rather pretty. But what's really important is that none of the techniques are really difficult, just take it step by step.
The yarn is Cascade Yarns 220 Fingering.
Find the pattern in Knitting Magazine issue 215 where you just might find another pattern and an article by me!
