GARTER STITCH (Worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

PICOT EDGE (back and forth on the needle):
RIGHT SIDE:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit until there are 4 stitches left, these are worked as follows: Knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, in each of the 2 last stitches knit 2 stitches = 2 new stitches on the needle.
ROW 3 (= right side): Slip the 1st stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over, knit 1 and pass the rearmost stitch on the right needle over the foremost, 2 stitches have been decreased – then knit the rest of the row.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Knit.
Repeat rows 1 to 4.

LEFT SIDE:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit until there are 4 stitches left, these are worked as follows: Knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, in each of the 2 last stitches knit 2 stitches = 2 new stitches on the needle.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Slip the 1st stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over, knit 1 and pass the rearmost stitch on the right needle over the foremost, 2 stitches have been decreased – then knit the rest of the row.
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Knit.
Repeat rows 1 to 4.

SHORT ROWS:
Work 6 rows over all stitches, * work 24-25-26-27-28 stitches (to the first marker), turn, tighten the strand and work to end of row. Work 1 row over all stitches, turn, work 24-25-26-27-28 stitches (to the first marker), turn, tighten the strand and work to end of row. Work 5 rows over all stitches *, repeat from *-*. In other words, you work 6 rows garter stitch (= 3 ridges) over the middle 66-70-72-80-86 stitches and 8 rows garter stitch (4 ridges) over the stitches in each side in each repeat.
--------------------------------------------------------

BOLERO:
The piece is worked sideways, back and forth with circular needle from armhole to armhole. Then the bolero is folded double and the side seams are sewn.

Cast on 76-80-84-88-92 stitches with Cotton Merino and circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Insert 1 marker in the piece 24-25-26-27-28 stitches in from each side (= 28-30-32-34-36 stitches between the markers). Work as follows – from the right side: PICOT EDGE RIGHT SIDE, GARTER STITCH – see descriptions above, over the next 68-72-76-80-84 stitches, PICOT EDGE LEFT SIDE over the next 4 stitches. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Continue with garter stitch and picot edge over the outermost 4 stitches in each side, AT THE SAME TIME work SHORT ROWS – see description above! When the piece measures approx. 36-41-46-51-56 cm / 14 1/4"-16"-18"-20"-22" (measured at the shortest point) loosely bind off.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the bolero double – the sketch shows the piece when it has been folded. Sew the bottom 6-6-7-7-8 cm / 2 1/4"-2 1/4"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-3" together, edge to edge in each side (= 12-13-13-14-14 cm / 4 3/4"-5"-5"-5½"-5½" armhole).
