    How do we access the larger sizes? Is it merely the change in needle size that matters or are there other PDFs?

    hi! this is so cute thanks for the pattern! this is my first time knitting something other than hats, its going well but I have a question about the arm hole, do I take the scrap yarn out after I have re-knit those stitches? should I see a hole?

      Hello Brandi!
      You leave the scrap yarn in until you’re ready to knit the sleeves. There won’t be a hole in the fabric. Then you remove the scrap yarn stitch by stitch, placing the live sts back on your needles. You’ll get 2 live sts for each scrap stitch you remove, one on each side. I hope this helps!

      Thank you the bolero looks beautiful! I Would you be willing to send me the pattern? Thanks in advance !

      Not only would I like to make the bolero, but I would like to use the pattern and adjust it to make a head band that has a similar closure.

      Thanks in advance!
