this looks great!  I'm hoping you can help me.  This is the first time I've used a pattern like this.  How many repeats do you do on the back before you start the arm?  The pattern says to "repeat pattern throughout" so, I've been doing the pattern to what I thought would be the length of the back.  Now i'm not sure.  should I have stopped after the first 9 rows and done the switch, or do I finish the back and then move on to the front?  Thanks so much for your help.

The 'repeat pattern' refers to repeating the rows to make each flower pattern complete. So doing rows 2-5 makes a flower complete, and 6-9 is another complete flower [the 2nd sets of flowers sit between the 1st set]. So then work in 10-12 which are repeats of 6-8 and stop there! Go back to the top of the pattern and start doing the front 2 panels [right and left]. Coz once you then finish those you get the 'top half' of the bolero, and then you'll continue it - the Body - by joining up the right-back-left.

Hey,
I'm sorry! Craftster didn't alert me that I had a new reply. I'm glad someone else answered it so I feel a little less bad. Thanks. Guess I'll have to check manually  Smiley

It's beautiful. Smiley Where did you get the pattern? It looks vaguely familiar to me; I've been reading a lot of pattern books lately.

Since my girls actually nap (knock on wood), I am going to start trying to work off my negative feedback.  Life got hectic with their early arrival.  I apologize for the inconveniences my flaking caused.

So, just to clarify... (b/c I'm a little retarded) We basically just repeat rows 1-9 again???

I used Caron Simply Soft, but I must warn that that yarn doesn't hang well. The bolero is soft alright, but it's kind of light and makes me look wider than I am. I plan on repeating the pattern with a DK cotton yarn and a smaller hook. I also want to taper the sleeves a bit so they're a bit more flattering. Thanks for the comments  Smiley
