Gray bolero

I made this vest initially for me. Not that it didn't suit me well, but I chose to give it to a special person on her birthday. I even added the pom-poms on that very day! The vest is featured in the summer collection of Simply Crochet magazine which I downloaded for free from here: http://www.molliemakesusa.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/simply_crochet_digital_download.pdf. I struggled a little with the pattern, but as you all know, different kinds of yarn act so differently worked with the very same crochet hook... For my vest, I used doubled Alize Bella cotton yarn, a 5 mm crochet hook and minimized the number of patterned columns, as even the smallest number was too large for me...
Anyway, maybe someday I'll make another one for me too. Maybe in white this time - I realised white suites me best when it comes to vests :)
