NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
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).

Bonjour Guiffard, si vous n'avez pas les bonnes mesures avec un crochet 7, essayez avec un crochet plus gros ( 8 par ex. voire 9 si le 8 ne suffit pas). Nous n'avons pas toutes la même façon de crocheter, l'important pour avoir un ouvrage aux dimensions requises est d'avoir le bon échantillon dès le départ, le n° de crochet est donné à titre indicatif.

Guiffard 26.08.2010 - 13:21:

Il est superbe mais le problème j'ai pas la dimension voulu , jai 21cm au lieu de 27cm.

Christine 22.05.2008 - 16:58:

Il est magnifique n'est-ce pas ? J'ai craqué...c'est le premier modèle que je réalise au crochet.
