Crochet gauge: 1 diamond should measure 27 x 27 cm
Crochet info: 1 ttr (treble tr) is crochet the same way as a dtr, but make 3 yo’s instead of 2 before putting hook through st in piece.

The Bolero is made up of 6 diamonds, which are then crochet together to form a rectangle.

Diamond: Crochet 4 ch using crochet hook size 7 with Eskimo and form a ring with a sl st.
1st round: 3 ch (= 1 tr), *1 ch, 1 tr in ring*, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times and finish with 1 ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beginning of round (= 8 tr on round)
2nd round: 3 ch (= 1 tr), *3 ch, 1 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times and finish with 3 ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beginning of round (= 8 tr on round)
3rd round: Crochet as follows in each ch-loop: 1 dc, 1 ch, 1 tr, 1 ch, 1 dtr, 1 ch, 1 dtr, 1 ch, 1 tr, 1 ch and 1 dc. Finish with 1 sl st in dc from beginning of round (= 8 leaves on round)
4th round: 4 ch (= 1 dtr = 1st corner), *5 ch, 1 dc at the top of next leaf (between the 2 dtr), 4 ch, 1 dc at the top of next leaf, 5 ch, 1 dtr between the 2 dc between leaves*, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times but finish with 1 sl st in 4th ch from beginning of round (instead of 1 dtr between 2 leaves) = 4 corner dtr and 12 ch loops
5th round: Read Crochet info! Crochet as follows in the corner dtr: 4 ch (= 1 dtr), 2 ch, 1 treble tr, 2 ch, 1 dtr. Crochet 4 dtr in each loop and in the corners as follows: 1 dtr, 2 ch, 1 treble tr, 2 ch, 1 dtr. Finish with a sl st in 4th ch from beginning of round.
Cut the thread.

Assembly: Crochet the diamonds together vertically and then horizontally as shown in diagram 1.
Bubble: Crochet 5 ch with Vienna + 2 threads glitter (wind up a little glitter on a piece of card so that you can crochet with 2 threads). Now crochet as follows: 1 dtr in the first of the 5 ch but wait with the last pull through (= 2 sts on needle), crochet another 4 dtr like this and then pull thread through all 8 sts on needle. Cut thread. Crochet a total of 6 bubbles and sew a bubble in the middle of each diamond.
Crochet border: crochet round the whole piece using 1 thread Vienna and 2 threads Glitter as follows: 1 dc in first st, *3 ch, skip 2 st, 1 dc in next st*, repeat from *-* and finish with 3 ch and 1 sl st in dc from beginning of round.

Fold the piece double horizontally and sew together with a couple of stitches in each corner (through both layers).
