Okay, I found one more 50s knitting pattern for a short bolero jacket! This one is really cute, with a stand-up shawl collar and cuff sleeves. It is more fitted than the 60s bolero I posted. This would look adorable knitted in angora, or some fluffy yarn.
This jacket is for sizes 12, 14, and 16. These are vintage 1955 sizes which would be a 32″ bust for 12, 34″ bust for 14, and 36″ bust for 16.
I love these styles so much! Happy knitting, and don’t forget to send me pics of the finished product!
Here is the pattern: Knit Jacket
Thank you for the bolaro,
I like the way the collar stands up, I think I will knit this one… maybe even in regular yarn,
If you ever find a 50’s cardigan pattern will you post it, I’m thinking I will get more use out of one with sleeves although this last one is tempting,
I’m working on a crochet tunic at the moment so I’m not sure when I will make the bolaro, I’m also searching for angora yarn… any ideas?
I’ll be posting more 50s/60s knitting patterns in the near future. I have several cute cardigan patterns! 🙂
Thank you for this pattern. It is exactly what I was looking for.
You are very welcome, Elize. Good luck in making it!
