I actually just finished this bolero. I intended to do it in black but never buy wool in bad lighting without checking the label. So now I have a dark brown bolero which matches exactly one of my tops. Oh well.

I changed the lacing as I didn't like straight rows. My only issue with it is, it doesn't come forward enough, for example I can't really wear it with spaghetti strap tops because the straps stick out. Not sure how one could fix that.

Words are boring though Tongue I'll try and get some photos.

alexania- Thanks for the info! It's very helpful. I can't wait to see yours.
I have mine sitting at the moment. Too busy to work on it though I need to move it near the TV to be my t.v. project.

You could make the ribbing longer, or the back part a little wider maybe.
