After almost pulling out my hair over this pretty pattern, I am glad to say that I am finished.
I just have some loose ends which need sewing and the final picture I need to take with all of the edgings finished.
I had a hard time memorizing this motif pattern. Then I put the squares together wrong ... Just one thing after another.
But, it's finished now and on a hangar.
These are the gauges I came up with after completing my bolero. I simply made a loose chain of 28 and worked 6 rows of dc stitches.
6 Dc rows equals 2 1/2 inches or 6 1/2 cm.
5 Dc equals 1 inch or 2 1/2 cm.
