CROCHET TIP:
Replace first dc on every round/row with 3 ch.

----------------------------------------------------------

The bolero consists of 12 squares worked tog into a rectangle.

SQUARE:
Ch 4 on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with one strand of each yarn (= 2 strands) and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: ch 1, 8 sc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
ROUND 2: ch 6 (= 1 dc + 3 ch), * 1 dc in next sc, ch 3 *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 8 dc with 3 ch between each.
ROUND 3: ch 1, then work as follows in every ch-space: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 3 dc, 1 hdc and 1 sc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves.
ROUND 4: ch 7, * 1 sc between the next 2 leaves, ch 6 *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times, finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round = 8 ch-spaces.
ROUND 5: ch 1, then work as follows in every ch-space: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 5 dc, 1 hdc and 1 sc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves.
ROUND 6: ch 10 , * 1 sc between the next 2 leaves, ch 9 *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times, finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round = 8 ch-spaces.
ROUND 7: ch 1, then work as follows in every ch-space: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 5 tr, 1 dc, 1 hdc and 1 sc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves. Cut the yarn and pull it through st on hook.
ROUND 8: Start with 1 sc in first tr on first leaf, ch 3 (= 1 dc), * 8 ch (= corner), skip 3 tr, 1 dc in last tr on same leaf, ch 5, 1 sc in first tr on next leaf, ch 5, skip 3 tr, 1 sc in last tr on same leaf, ch 5, 1 dc in first tr on next leaf *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times but finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round (instead of 1 dc in 1st tr on next leaf).
ROUND 9: 1 sl st in 8-ch-space, * 4 dc + ch 4 + 4 dc in ch-space in the corner, (4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-space), repeat from (-) a total of 3 times, ch 4 *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round.
ROUND 10: 1 dc in each of the first 4 dc, * in ch-space in the corner work 3 dc + ch 2 + 3 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc, 4 dc in each of the next 4 ch-spaces, 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, finish round with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round.
There are now 30 dc along each side and 2 ch in every corner. Cut the thread.
Square measures approx. 23 x 23 cm / 9'' x 9".
Work a total of 12 squares.

ASSEMBLY:
First work the squares tog across and then along the sides with 4 squares in width and 3 rows vertically. Work squares tog as shown in A.1

CROCHET EDGE:
Work a finishing edge around the entire rectangle on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with 1 strand of each yarn: 1 sc in first st, * ch 3, skip 2 sts, 1 sc in next st *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 3 ch and 1 sl st in sc from beg of round.

Fold the rectangle double across and fasten it with a few sts in each corner (through both layers).
