Bolero Color Crude

I would like to thank Judy, who graciously translated the instructions from Spanish to English for me and given me some very helpful tips as we CAL this bolero. Once again, thanks, Judy appreciate it very much and I truly enjoyed CAL with you!!

By the way , this is my student, Eivian Huan, who came for her 1st knitting lesson this morning and I made her the model for this bolero!! She is a fashion design student and has lots of potential and A quick learner too!
Closer view of the bolero.
I've added few rows on pattern "#2" to make it a longer bolero and made it long sleeves instead of 3/4 lenght.

I have to model this because I was too rush and forgotten to take picture on the back of the bolero earlier when Eivian was modeling it!!

A crochetted flower is used as button for the bolero. I used a pearl button to stitched at the centre of the flower. As advised by Judy, I did not crochet the 5cm loop, instead use one of the space formed by the pattern as a loop.

Annie! I love,love,love it! It's beautiful with the additional rows in the front. I see you decided not to add the sleeve edging in pattern stitch #2. Very the color.
