For this Crochet Bolero Jacket project, you will need:
Yarn: 2 skeins of yarn if your making it for a child and up. This one that you see is for a child who is 5 years old.
Hook: 5mm / H hook and two markers.
This is less of a pattern and more of an explanation on how I did it, because it’s just something I made for my daughter and it’s so simple, your just measuring and making a rectangle to fit the person from wrist to wrist. Let be try to explain.
To make a Bolero Jacket is simple. You need to measure the person whom your making it for. In this case it was for a child and she is about 88 cms from wrist to wrist. So I did a single crochet foundation stitch until my chain reached 88 cms give or take. Since I decided I wanted to use my stitch: Black Berry Lace Stitch I had just designed, I wanted to use it on something else. To begin the stitch it goes in sets of 3 sts, so I got to roughly 88 cms, then counting in threes my stitches until I had what I needed in stitches and in width.
You can find the tutorial for the Black Berry Lace Scarf here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bupQ8eBzSvQ it teaches you how to do the stitch. Or of you would like to see more pictures, I have a video here:

Then it’s just making a rectangle. I made mine until I could wrap the piece around my daughter’s arms to make the sleeves. (As you can see below) I wouldn’t make it any wider than that, or else the sleeves will just hang.
Then I had her put her arms out so I could measure where I should stop sewing the sleeves and marked them with a marker, as shown below.
Then turn your work inside out and sew it by single crocheting the sides together, making sure to push the berry’s inside the jacket as you single crochet.
If you find that your sleeves are to short, then you can always add a border along the sleeves later to give you more length.
Once you have both sleeves sewn. Turn your bolero inside out again where the right side is showing.
I am right handed to working in the right side corner, I attached my yarn with a double crochet connection and then did another double crochet into the same stitch.
Working 2 double crochets in each stitch around. Making sure to keep the Black berry’s facing out.
Slip stitch into the beginning stitch and ch 1, cut your yarn. It’s done!
