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

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

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

SQUARE:
Crochet 4 ch on hook size 5 mm with one thread of each yarn (= 2 threads) and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: 1 ch, 8 dc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in first dc.
ROUND 2: Work 6 ch (= 1 tr + 3 ch), * 1 tr in next dc, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 8 tr with 3 ch between each.
ROUND 3: 1 ch, then work as follows in every ch-loop: 1 dc, 1 htr, 3 tr, 1 htr and 1 dc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves.
ROUND 4: Work 7 ch, * 1 dc between the next 2 leaves, 6 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times, finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round = 8 ch-loops.
ROUND 5: 1 ch, then work as follows in every ch-loop: 1 dc, 1 htr, 5 tr, 1 htr and 1 dc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves.
ROUND 6: Work 10 ch, * 1 dc between the next 2 leaves, 9 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times, finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round = 8 ch-loops.
ROUND 7: 1 ch, then work as follows in every ch-loop: 1 dc, 1 htr, 1 tr, 5 dtr, 1 tr, 1 htr and 1 dc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves. Cut the thread and pull it through st on hook.
ROUND 8: Start with 1 dc in first dtr on first leaf, 3 ch (= 1 tr), * 8 ch (= corner), skip 3 dtr, 1 tr in last dtr on same leaf, 5 ch, 1 dc in first dtr on next leaf, 5 ch, skip 3 dtr, 1 dc in last dtr on same leaf, 5 ch, 1 tr in first dtr 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 tr in 1st dtr on next leaf).
ROUND 9: 1 sl st in 8-ch-loop, * 4 tr + 4 ch + 4 tr in ch-loop in the corner, (4 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop), repeat from (-) a total of 3 times, 4 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, finish with 1 sl st in first tr from beg of round.
ROUND 10: 1 tr in each of the first 4 tr, * in ch-loop in the corner work 3 tr + 2 ch + 3 tr, 1 tr in each of the next 4 tr, 4 tr in each of the next 4 ch-loops, 1 tr in each of the next 4 tr *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, finish round with 1 sl st in first tr from beg of round. There are now 30 tr along each side and 2 ch in every corner. Cut the thread. Square measures approx. 23 x 23 cm. 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

J'adore ce modèle ... je le réalise actuellement ! Pouvez vous m'expliquer pourquoi vous faites vos carrés en deux parties ? Vous arrêtez le travail après le rg 7 puis recommencer pour le rg 8 . Merci pour votre réponse Marie

Bonjour Marie, on coupe le fil à la fin du 7ème tour pour que le 8ème tour commence au bon endroit: on termine le 7ème tour par 1 mc dans la 1ère ml du début du tour, mais le 9ème tour va commencer par 1 ms dans la 1ère DB du pétale, on évite ainsi la surépaisseur des mailles coulées. Bon crochet!

I’m a plus size girl I need to make this 3x size & im new to crocheting so I don’t know how to do that yet please help & I love this so much thank you for sharing

Hi Shelia, We are unfortunately not able to adjust our patterns to every individual request. check the measurements in the chart fort the larger size and try to adjust with the tension and desired measurements. You are welcome to contact your DROPS store or a knitting forum for any further individual assistance. Happy knitting!

DE OLIVEIRA 20.03.2017 - 09:55:

Peut on commencer par un cercle magique au lieu de monter des ml ? Je trouve cela plus jolie. Merci de votre reponse .

DROPS Design 20.03.2017 kl. 10:34:

Bonjour Mme De Oliveira, le centre de la fleur n'est pas forcément supposé être "plein", faites d'abord un échantillon pour vérifier que votre carré aura la bonne dimension ainsi. Bon crochet!

Toer 10: beginnen met 2 l (=1stk) en dan nog 3 st Anders gaat het het trekken

Sarah Vaughan 26.12.2014 - 18:57:

Are the yarn amounts correct? I am in the process of crocheting the bolero & have run out of alpaca mix. (I still have plenty of kid-silk left). I haven't completed joining the squares together as per the diagram yet & still have the edging to do. (My tension is correct & the squares measure 23cmx23cm) I would be grateful for your comments.

DROPS Design 30.12.2014 kl. 13:25:

Dear Mrs Vaughan, you need 200 g Alpaca (= 4 x 167 m = 668 m) and 100 g Kid-Silk (668 m / 200 m a ball Kid-Silk = 3.34 ie 4 balls Kid-Silk since 3 balls wouldn't be enough). Happy crocheting!

Kati 13.11.2014 - 10:18:

Ich würde gerne dieses Jäckchen häkeln und bin dabei auf ein Problem gestoßen. Da ich hierfür ein anderes Garn verwenden möchte bereitet mir die Lauflänge der beiden verwendeten Garne Probleme, da diese weit auseinander gehen. Alpaca 668 Meter Silk 400m Nach welchem Wert muss ich mich richten? Da das Modell ja durchgehend mit zwei Fäden gehäkelt wird, sollten doch eigentlich die Lauflängen in etwa gleich sein oder hab ich da jetzt einen Denkfehler. Vielen Dank für eure Hilfe. Gruß Kati

DROPS Design 15.11.2014 kl. 20:12:

Umgerechnet ergibt die Lauflänge für Alpaca wie von Ihnen geschrieben 668m (4 x 50g à 167m), für Kid-Silk jedoch 800m (4 x 25g à 200m). Es reichen somit 668m. Diese sind jedoch mit 3 Knäueln Kid-Silk nicht zu erreichen, denn dann hätten Sie ja nur 600m, also muss ein 4. Knäuel her, das aber dann nicht ganz aufgebraucht wird. Ich würde empfehlen, als Richtwert 700m zu nehmen.

Kathy 14.07.2014 - 22:17:

Why not one yarn -- why two? I don't understand. Would you rate this as intermediate or advanced.

DROPS Design 15.07.2014 kl. 08:45:

Dear Kathy, this pattern is worked with 1 strand each quality hold together as 1 to get the requested effect - check that your tension is correct, 1 square = 23 x 23 cm. Happy crocheting!
