Introduction

Crystal Lace Bolero

For me, inspiration comes from literally everything I touch. This bolero is all emotions.  See, my best friend recently moved to Phoenix and since I live in the east coast, I definitely had mixed emotions. On one hand I was jumping for joy, because it was their dream move, and really, a perfect city for them. But on the other hand, what on earth can you crochet for your biggest supporter when she moves to the hottest city in the US? So Crystal’s lace was born. It all started with the notion of hot weather crocheting.  You want something that is small and very portable… Hmm, obviously it must be a granny square. Now for fiber, yes cotton is great, but where’s the elastic in it? And Phoenix does have cool nights… Ah, a light wool/nylon blend. And presto!, the bolero was born. So watch out, you never know when your emotions are going to challenge you to crochet!

Ed. note: Robyn has written a blog post to address common questions about the bolero.

Materials List

  • Softwist by Berroco, #9467 Amethyst, (41% wool, 59% nylon), 100 yds (91m): 5 (7, 9) hanks
  • 5.50mm (US size I/9) hook
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends

Yarn for this project was generously supplied (and wound beautifully) by Dream Weaver Yarns.

Finished Size

Small, (Medium, Large)

To fit bust sizes 28”-32”, (33”-36”, 38”-44”) and upper arm circumference 9” (12”, 15”).

Gauge

4” x 4” (10cm x 10cm) = 1 granny square

Special Stitches:

Cluster (CL): Yo, *insert hook into ring, yo, draw up loop, yo, draw through 2 loops on hook,* repeat from * to * twice more, yo, draw through remaining 4 loops on hook.  

Notes

Stitch close-up

  • Please watch size as you join granny squares. Softwist is very elastic and will stretch, so if you plan on using a different yarn, check fit often. Fit is intended to be relaxed.
  • Keep in mind that you can easily alter the garment by changing the layout of the granny squares. For example, if you would prefer cap sleeves, leave off the grannies at the arm. Or if you want a shrug; leave off the grannies at the front panels. The options are yours, enjoy exploring.
  • Written instructions are provided along with diagrams. Click diagram thumbnails to enlarge.

I had crochet hooks, knitting needles, large yarn needles AND small sharp pointed scissors in a craft carrying case in my carry-on luggage and NO ONE said a word all six times I transferred planes from California to Utah to Washington State and back to California...should I be worried??

Beautiful pattern. I can't believe you made this up yourself! I have a question, though. I've made the granny squares and joined them as indicated in the Small Layout. I've also joined the arm squares to make the arms and joined the side panels to the back to put the body together. However, the bolero doesn't fit right now, and my measurements are exactly what's given for a small. How is the finishing of the body part supposed to work? Thanks very much in advance.

Robyn wrote
on Jul 7, 2006 12:30 PM

Dear Anonymous, I am not sure how to answer your question. If your granny squares are about 4x4, the back comes out to be about 16" wide for the small. The collar adds about 3" to the length and closes the panels in the front. It could be that your joining is too tight? Or if you used a different yarn, it is not elastic like the softwist. I am only guessing. You can always email me, and we can try to work this out more. Good Luck!- Robyn

I take crochet hooks and knitting needles on all the time, even international flights. Do not take your nice scissors however, i always take a nail clipper to cut the thread/yarn.

Thanks for the reply, Robyn! I think you might be right about the yarn--mine is 100% acrylic and not elastic at all. (I'm still a beginner, so I've been using the cheaper stuff from Michael's.) I think I'll try the medium size instead. Thanks again!

Hi Robyn
I love your pattern and have made the grannie squares as directed but the medium size layout does not seem to correspond with the same amount of squares as instructions. For instance the pattern says make 22 full g.squares but in the layout there only seems to be 20. Also there is 4 1/2 grannies not 2 and 4 3/4 grannies not 2. Could you enlighten me please? Thanks very much

I love the pattern and had no trouble crocheting it. I cannot however put it togeather. I see no legend or layout you mention. Maybe I'm missing something. A chart showing wher the peices go would be very helpful. Hope you can help me as I think it is beatiful.

on Jul 20, 2006 10:10 AM

The text in the first sentence under the "Joining" heading links to images for the layouts and legend.

Cheers,

Hi Julie-

I think I see where you are getting confused on the medium layout. The motifs that go under the arm are one full motif, not 2 half motifs. The dotted line in the layout is what I used to suggest the continuation of the motif. I thought I described this in a note, but it appears that I did not. I apologize for the confusion. -Robyn

I got all the way through joining the grannies (using the large layout), but I'm having trouble joining the side seams. They don't seem to match up around the armpit area. Could you be more specific with how to join the side seams? Thanks.

This is really a nice looking piece. I am not new to crochet, but new to doing anything other than afgans and scarves. My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was a little boy. Sofar all my girlfriends love that I crochet. I want to make one of these for a special girl. I have figgured out how to do the squares. (thank GOD those aren't hard at all!)

I can figgure out everything that is done here by the wonderful diagrams Except the collar and the cuffs. which do not have diagrams.

The problem I have is with the collar and arm cuff. What does SL mean and SP mean? I have

Where do I find pictures of what you did on the cuffs and collar? Anyone know? Sorry if this is a stupid question.

Thanks for the wonderful pattern, I'm sure that the special someone will love wearing the finished product as much as she loves her numerous scarves.

Thank You for your time.

hi. i love this pattern, and so far it has turned out beautifully, but i'm a bit stuck. like others, i have no problem with the squares or the layout of them. basically, i got confused at number 5 under joining and everything following that. what i have so far matches the small layout exactly, but i'm not sure about the edging at neck and front panel and the cuffs and collar. i'd appreciate any help you have time to give me. thanks!

Lorien wrote
on Mar 6, 2007 12:19 PM
hi again! i'm happy to say that i figured this pattern out myself. i realize now that the edging is just to straighten out the edges and make the collar run smoothly around the whole garment. i think the main thing that threw me off is that the collar and cuffs are not worked in rounds going around the edges of the squares, but instead, they are made of short turning rows that go toward and away from the squares. i hope that makes sense. well, if not, i figured it out and that's what matters. i must say, robyn, you are a genius! i love this pattern and i look forward to bragging that i actually made this myself! :D i definitely want to try out some more of your patterns. thanks again!

I was afraid to make the bolero because of the other people posting that it was difficult. I had no trouble though I am a beginner. One reminder is that there needs to be a shoulder which is never mentioned for size small. Make sure to crochet together a little at the shoulders. It is a cute and stylish bolero to wear on a night out. I love it. Thanks Robyn!

I have done all the squares and 3/4 squares (I'm using the large layout) but I keep getting stuck on how to put them together. I have got as far as connecting two sets of four squares with one strip of netting and one flower thingy in the middle of each set, but I can't fathom how to get from that point to connecting all of the squares to each other. Can anybody suggest an alternative joining method (or even an alternative explanation of the instructions that might make it clearer how to get all the squares connected) that won't mess things up when it comes to adding the ribbed edging?

I have made 22 of the grannies and wanted to start the layout to see if I need to make it larger; however, when I try to click on any of the layouts or the legend my computer will not access them (shows then words underlined, but has what looks like a capital I or a sideways H rather than a pointer to click).  Is there any other way to access the layouts and legend?

I very rarely make anything with granny squares as i do not like joining them but my granddaughter saw this and loved it so of course i need to make this. I am not understanding the layout. Where do the 3/4 granny squares go. How many granny squares across, how many down? I am making the small.

I can't find the layout of each size.  I can't seem to find it, even in the coats & clark website as some suggested.  Do they only show up if I print the pattern  or has it been omitted.  Can you please help me.  Thanks.  Cecilia

I can't seem to get the Layout Patterns to come up. Any suggestions how to get these? I am mousing over and nothing will "click" although it highlights. I am making the Small.

Thanks

OK, the Coats and Clark website was a bust, nothing will come up and there is not a Search function. However if you go to the Blog link at the top of the pattern page, and click on Layout, the Small one comes up.  At least it only has 10 Granny squares. I think it would be pretty simple to extrapolate out where the other Med and Large squares go. I was able to print it our this way! Hope this helps the other posters who are also confused!
