The design for this bolero came about one hot summer day when the office air conditioning blew me chilly. I longed for something to cover my shoulders and protect me from the cold, but I wanted it to be airy enough to wear in the warm outdoors. This lacy cotton shrug fits the bill. Knitted in a single piece that's shaped from the right sleeve, across the back, and ends at the left sleeve, it's a bit more challenging, but well worth the effort.
