I've been searching high and low for a lacy very light weight little top I guess they call it a bolero. I found this (http://garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=95&d_id=36&lang=en) today but of course! it's crochet.
Has anybody seen something similar to this but knitted? These are very popular for spring, they're in a lot of stores and they're so nice for summer.

I want to use big needles and make it really light. (and quick)

Wow Thank you Sandy! How'd you find all those??? I missed them... saw one of them and wasn't sure but now I like it. I'm printing out the ModeaDea, Woman's Day and Lion Brand. I think I can 'tweak' those to get exactly what I want. You're great! :cheering:

You're very welcome. Thanks for stroking my ego! :D

I love to look for patterns.....it's one of my favorite pastimes. I'm stuck at home now, recuperating from a hysterectomy, so I've become pretty adept at "googling". :happydance:

Good luck on the bolero!

By the way, I love the site you listed for the original pattern you found. I spent about an hour looking through that site today. Beautiful patterns!

Hi Vic!

I'll reply to you in a personal message about my need for a hysterectomy, so the forum doesn't get grossed out! :shock:

Thanks for checking out my blog. I've had so much fun making it! :D
