Handmade Craft: Work Details

The yarn (100% wool) used in this was a Delight to work with. This crochet bolero was adapted from a pattern in a Japanese crochet book that I have had since I was 11. It was so fun to make I should have done this much sooner.

The pattern however had to be quite heavily adapted as the yarn I used and the yarn they used were drastically different. The pattern called for a much thinner yarn and quite a bit of re-calculation had to be done to adapt this to this thick bouncy yarn. But I am now a happy bunny!
