This pattern is the traditional 1 x 1 birdseye but the weaving yarn makes it look different.

The weaving yarn is threaded through the tension mast.
Knit this bolero interactively, shape only.
The basic shape (back, fronts and sleeve) was created in Standard Garment Styling and tweaked in Original Pattern Drafting.
By “knit manually”, I mean using Interactive Knitting *without the machine*, i.e. using the UP arrow tool.
