A Wool Baa Princess Cardi-Bolero

Inspired by the bolero cardi worn by the new duchess, we have designed an angora cardi-bolero that would be perfect for an evening out.

This easy pattern is suitable for the beginner to intermediate knitter.  This garment has 3/4 raglan sleeves and is designed to be worn open at the front, although it can be stretched and buttoned shut for a fitted shape.  It is mostly knitted in angora, with Adorn Silky Merino as a contrast texture for the opening front and neck bands.  The opening band is finished with a couple of rows of angora.
