Ribbed Lace Bolero

Ribbed Lace Bolero
I’ve finished my ribbed lace bolero, with pattern as promised ;) I decided not to give the sleeves ribbing, like most of you suggested. I liked how it was sort of dainty, even with worsted weight yarn, and I thought ribbing on the sleeves would be too heavy for it. The shape of this is based on the Circular Shrug on Craftster. It’s a simple but ingenious design. There is no complicated shaping (it’s really just a big rectangle) and it’s easily customized. If you have questions, please contact me by email or through ravelry.
