Knitting Gauge: 12 sts x 17 rows on needles size 8 mm with 1 thread of silke-tweed and 1 thread of Vivaldi in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm.

The Cardigan is knitted in one piece, back and forth on circular needles.
Loosely cast on 72-76-81-87-93 sts (inclusive of 1 seam st each side – all seam sts are knitted in garter st throughout) on needles size 8 mm with 1 thread of Silke-Tweed and 1 thread of Vivaldi. Knit 2 rows garter sts and continue in stocking sts with a seam st each side. When the piece measures 12-13-14-15-16 cm cast on new sts each side for sleeves on every other row (i.e. at the end of each row) as follows: 13-13-13-9-8 sts 1 time, 14-13-13-9-8 sts 1 time, 14-14-13-9-9 sts 1 time and 0-0-0-10-10 sts 1 time = 154-156-159-161-163 sts. Continue until the piece measures 26-28-30-32-34 cm and then insert a marking thread each side, you are now half way – NB: It is important to keep to the measurements, because of the width of the sleeves - they should be a little tight. Continue in stocking sts until the piece measures 11-12-13-12-13 cm from the marking thread (total measures = 37-40-43-44-47 cm). Now bind off each side on every other row (at the beginning of each row) as follows: 0-0-0-10-10 sts 1 time, 14-14-13-9-9 sts 1 time, 14-13-14-9-8 sts 1 time and 13-13-13-9-8 sts 1 time = 72-76-81-87-93 sts. Continue until the piece measures 51-55-59-63-67 cm – make sure the next row is from the wrong side - knit 2 rows of garter sts and bind off loosely.

Assembly: Fold the piece in half at the marking threads and sew the side and the sleeve seams together inside of the seam sts.

Crochet edge: Crochet a wide edge around the bottom of the sleeves and all around the opening of the Bolero. Using crochet hook size 7 and Cotton Viscose + 1 thread of Silke tweed (start at the centre back and at the seam on the sleeves) crochet as follows:
1st round: 1 dc in the 1st st *4 ch, 1 tr in the 1st of the 4 ch’s, skip 2–2.5 cm, 1 dc in the next st*, repeat from *-* and finish with a sl st in the 1st dc from beginning of round.
