Bolero

I've wanted to make a bolero for some time now, but haven't found the right pattern. Inspired by one spotted in Oslo the other day, and with some help from Barbara Walker, I now make my own. I'm knitting top-down with black Babysilk, which I love, and 3 mm needles. Stockinette stitches all the way, and a tiny 1x1 rib edging is the plan for the moment.

I suspect that my raglan increases might hit somewhere outside my armpits, though, due to a quite wide neckline and a possible miscalculation concerning the relation between front/back/arms stitches. I'll try the thing on properly later tonight, crossing my fingers that my suspicion fails. I will frog if necessary, but not gladly.
