I don't know about you, but I so dream of summer.
Warm days , filled with sun, lovely chances to see my little one play outside ….endless opportunities to wear something lighter, cute and able to fit with every tank top I have in my wardrobe ( and believe me I have quite a few).
This made me look for a pattern to use some mercerized cotton I have lying around and I stumbled, in a Chinese magazine, upon 2 cute models unbelievably easy to make.
A year ago , when I first started to be interested in crocheted items, these models would have been perfect for my first handmade grown-up items , however…it’s never too late to try making something easy, elegant and very pretty to wear this summer.

I find this particular model ideal for elegant wear. Perfect for a night out by the beach, an evening spend on a restaurant terace with your friends or simply a walk along a river , this is the bolero you need to combine with a very feminine maxi dress.
The bodice pattern is very easy to follow :
1. Start with a basic chain and make a chain as long as you need ( measure yourself)
2. Fan pattern : 3dc, ch2, 3 dc , sl in 3d chain...etc...
3. V pattern : 1dc , ch 2, 1 2c, chain 3 in the middle of every fan below.
4. Mercerized cotton , 2mm hook.

1 dc, ch 2,2dc, ch1,2dc,ch2...and so on...
