Amellia Bolero

Issue: 79


Amellia Bolero by Jannifer Reid

Find the pattern in issue 79 of Inside Crochet magazine.

A pretty bolero inspired by the fresh colours of a summer garden
and a perfect cover-up for those chilly evenings, worked in a subtle
colour changing yarn.

● Yarn Garden Burr Oak 4ply, 55% wool/45% silk, 100g/400m/437yds
Shade: Clematis Viticaulis x 1 (2, 2, 2) skein(s)
● 3mm hook
● Yarn needle

If substituting, aim for similar fibres to retain the stretch and drape, and always double check your tension. Yarns such as The Uncommon Thread Merino Silk Fingering or Old Maiden Aunt Superwash
Merino/Silk should work well.

Work two pattern repeats (14 sts and rows 3 & 4 twice) to measure 4.5 x 3cm/1¾ x 1¼in using 3mm hook, or size required to obtain tension.

Finished bolero measures 78 (86, 93, 102) x 25 (30, 34, 38)cm/ 31 (34, 37, 40) x 10 (12, 13½, 15)in.

Jennifer Reid loves all things craft, but holds a special torch for crochet and is fascinated by vintage crochet. Visit her Ravelry site at
