I used a fan stitch border with picots. But this is at your choice:)

found on pinterest some:

Just a suggestion: try a different color, it’s pretty tough to work on black…

And my WIP this week:

It’s a dress in summer colors. It will be a dress, I hope I will finish it soon.

#crochet, #bolero




I use crochet thread (label says Nm 6, 34 sc x 10 rows = 10 x 10 cm, 4 x 4 inch) and a 3 mm hook. I have 4 skeins, 327 yds per skein (or 300 m).

First I found a nice granny with a little flower in the middle. It is a 6 cm granny ( this is the gauge:D), that means 2.2 inch.

and the #pattern for it:

shrug granny


I made  few, 11, and then I joined 5, for a XS – S size (31 cm after joining) ( for M-L you will need 6, and maybe some extra rounds of dc/sc, depends on your size, XL or more 7 grannies and so on):





After joining I made 2 rows of sc to equalize, and 1 row : cluster of 3 alternating cross stitch ( just in case I want to use a ribbon or a belt), then I started pattern:
