The basic shape (back, fronts and sleeve) was originally created in Standard Garment Styling and tweaked in Original Pattern Drafting. Actually, I used the shape of another bolero (Bolero with Tie, also in the DesignaKnit Gallery).
Only the fronts and sleeve needed to be altered.
The “casing” (knitted separately) and the tie are not represented in the shape file.
you have 2 points (7 & 17) , on either edge of the sleeve cap, about 11 cm down from the cap top. This is where the curved lines will cross.
By “knit manually”, I mean using Interactive Knitting *without the machine*, i.e. using the UP arrow tool.
