The weather this spring did not make us too happy; I started to knit this bolero at the first warm-ish moment, thinking that it would be the perfect accessory to go with sleeveless outfits. Then the cold weather came back and it waited for a long time in the bottom of my knitting basket to be finished.

Written and charted instructions with photo tutorial for the lace border.
