Welcome to the Sweet Nothings Crochet blog for free crochet patterns with my original designs and creations. :)
Over the years, I've found that there are a lot of free charts available on the net, so as I make the project off that chart, I write down my notes and share them here on my blog. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for stopping by.

BLACK BEAUTY LACY BOLERO
BEAUTY LACY BOLERO
is a cute lacy bolero that just flirts on top of your dress – a lacy wispy
creation that is just swell.
It is a pretty (not too difficult) pattern
repeat and I’d say it can be attempted by almost anyone.. so come along and
let’s see how we make this lovely creation. Come along, and like my model says, Let's Create
check my long Pinterest link for all the free patterns I’ve written up over the
years right at the bottom of this blog.
And inspired by this photo, here are my
pattern notes as I work on my project.
Materials used :
I’ve used ~ 200 gms of All-Seasons Hobby India yarn with a 3 mm crochet hook
Our lovely Indian Anchor knitting cotton and White rose knitting cotton yarns
are a good substitute. I’d also suggest
Alize cotton yarn – and you can get all of this with a easy mouse click on the
top right hand side of this blog (read : Click here to buy yarns Online)
This yarn is a super fine knitting cotton yarn. The other international yarns
I’ve used of this thickness are Milford Satin knitting cotton, DMC Petra
knitting cotton & Aunt Lydia Bamboo Viscose 10 knitting cottons.
Difficulty level : Advanced Skill level.
Stitches used :

lovely creation was shared on Facebook recently, and I was soon asked if I
could make a lacy bolero and here was this wonderful project.
I have been hard pressed for time, and I am grateful that this is a
pattern is worked bottom up – so that first row that we work, will be the back
centre. We then start increasing in pattern,
and we get a semicircular pattern for the front halves.
your work reaches the armhole level, we divide off for the two fronts and one
back and work each part individually.
the final bit, we attach the shoulders to complete the basic bolero.
Thereafter, you make the lovely flowers and attach as instructed.
count your stitches and the loops (ch-7 sps) every time.
counting off 7 ch-7 sps for the armhole, I counted off 10. I made the XL / 102 cm version. I had 43 ch-7 sps, so divided it 10 each for
the two fronts, and 23 for the back.
c)I worked on
the 10 ch-7 sps for 2 rows, and then reduced to 7 ch-7 sps over the next 3
worked on the 7 ch-7 sps till the shoulder (as indicated in the instructions)
thought that these instructions were not very clear in the pattern sheet –
which is why I have listed them here. Oh I also did not work the flowers along the lapels, which is why my bolero looks simply different ;)
you have fun creating this lovely bolero as well.
