This is a PDF pattern for a crocheted bolero that can be made as a vest or with long or short sleeves. Bolero jackets have been a staple in women’s fashion since the 19th century. Inspired by the short jackets worn by Spanish dancers and bullfighters, these cardigans can be used to dress any outfit up or down. The cropped shape of the bolero helps to emphasize the waist by reducing bulk in the middle. Add a few of these easy pieces to your doll’s wardrobe, and see all of the possibilities that this versatile garment provides.

This cute and clever bolero was so fun to make! I used a color changing yarn; it was fun watching the next colors emerge. There are so many edging options you can't stop at making just one.
I made the short sleeved version and it was very, very cute on the doll! I'm starting on a long sleeve one for fall....;)
I love this pattern. I have made a bolero jacket already and have received lots of compliments on it. Looking forward to more crochet and knitting patterns!
