this is my favourite project from the happy hooker i cant wait to make one for myself. you did a really great job on it. how much yarn did use? im thinking about going shopping for mine in a couple days just want to finish a couple current projects first (haha yeah right)

Hmm..it's been so long I can't be sure. I used a really really cheap acrylic yarn, probably three 3.5 oz skeins. I suggest paying a little more and getting a great cotton yarn like the pattern suggests, or at least get a yarn with a similar weight. I've been really happy with lion brand cotton ease and that's only $5-$6 a skein. I've never actually worn my bolero because its too soft and drapey. If I made it again I'd definitely use a more substantial yarn. Hope this helps and good luck!  Smiley
