Cozy Bolero

The name says it all, this bolero is cozy! With 3/4 length sleeves, cropped length, and flattering front shaping the Cozy Bolero is the perfect layer for spring days and summer evenings. Knit using large needles and super bulky yarn make this a weekend project. Knit from the top down, there are zero seams to sew up and the garment can be tried on as you go for that perfect fit. The combination of simple stockinette stitch and bulky yarn make this bolero a good introduction to knitting from the top down.
