FO- Bolero/Shrug for my niece!

I finished a week before her birthday, yay! I had fun doing this; I love knitting stuff that can be knit in one piece! This is the bolero (called Molly) in the Junior Knits book by Debbie Bliss, knit in her cashmerino yarn. It’s so soft!

Thanks for looking!

OH I love that! I was thinking of knitting it for my nephew’s daughter - does that make her my ‘great’ niece? How did you find the sizing - the little girl I want to knit it for is quite petite and I’ve heard that some Debbie Bliss patterns come up big? Anyway, yours is gorgeous, your niece will love you even more now!:cheering:

Thank you!

I haven’t given it to her yet, so I’m not sure if it will fit her. I made the size 4/5 and she is turning four, so it will probably have some room for her to grow. I did try it on my three year old son :teehee: and it was way big for him. The sleeves seemed really long! I hope it fits my niece, but we’ll see!

It was fairly quick to knit up- you should definitely make one for your great-niece!

That is just lovely and a beautiful color too!

[SIZE=4][COLOR=DarkOrchid]That is really sweet Tiphanie! I’m doing a sweater in that color right now. It looks like it’ll be very comfortable.



beautifullllllllllllllllll :yay:


:yay::muah:[FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=4][COLOR=royalblue]looks great! [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]:muah::yay:

great color!

That’s really cute!

I’m knitting the Molly - in fact I’ve finished the one piece, about to start the edging, but I noticed that my fronts are not rounded at all (stair step looking) and my sleeves are short - any help would be great! thanks

Is there some secret way in to see the pics? It tells me they have been removed.

Sorry, this is an old thread! I just added the pics back on, let me know if you have trouble viewing it, via the link.

ock~ can you possibly post a picture so we can see what your progress looks like? Thanks!

Thanks for reposting the photos. That is nice!

very tidy work and beautidul color! Would like to see how it fit your nice!?:inlove:

Very nice shrug. The color is such a pretty one.

Thank you for fixing the photo. The shrug is really very pretty, did she like it?

That is one of my ‘go to’ colors when buying yarn, I have a couple of projects planned for it.
