GARTER ST:
K back and forth on all rows. 1 ridge = 2 K rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagram A.1 shows all rows in 1 pattern repetition seen from RS.
--------------------------------------------------------

BOLERO:
Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 55-55-59-63-67-71 sts on needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Cotton Light.
Work 6 rows in GARTER ST - read explanation above.
Work next row from RS as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, work diagram A.1 (13-13-14-15-16-17 times in total) until 2 sts remain on row, finish with 1st st in A.1 and 1 edge st in garter st.
Continue like this with pattern and 1 edge st in garter st in each side. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures approx. 57-59-61-63-65-67 cm / 22½''-23¼''-24''-24¾''-25½''-26½'' (finish with 2nd row in A.1), work in garter st over all sts.
When 3 ridges have been worked, loosely bind off all sts (piece measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23½''-24½''-25¼''-26''-26¾'').

ASSEMBLY:
Sew tog for sleeves as follows (see chart): Place point a against point b, sew inside 1 edge st 8-7-6-5-4-4 cm / 3"-2 3/4"-2½"-2"-1½"-1½" from cast on edge in towards the middle. Repeat with point c against point d on the other side.

CROCHET EDGE:
Worked in the round. With hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 and beg mid under a sleeve, work sc around the entire opening between sleeves (work approx. 4 sc over 6 rows) - no of sc should be divisible by 8. NOTE! Work enough sc to avoid a tight edge.
