Bolan Kit

      Leila Raven’s Bolan is a breezy summer tee with an inventive structure; it is knitted sideways in four pieces--two panels for the front, two for the back--and worked from the center out to the ends of the short sleeves. Embellished with textural lace and knit with plenty of ease in washable BC Garn Bio Balance (55% organic Shetland wool, 45% organic cotton), this summer top is both pretty and comfortable, even on the hottest days!

      Bolan is available in nine sizes and is designed to fit with 15 inches of positive ease. The sizes listed below correspond to the actual measurement of the finished garment, so to achieve the recommended fit, please choose a size that is 15 inches larger than the wearer’s chest measurement.
      • Size 1: 43” finished chest circumference
      • Size 2: 48.5” finished chest circumference
      • Size 3: 54” finished chest circumference
      • Size 4: 59.5” finished chest circumference
      • Size 5: 65” finished chest circumference
      • Size 6: 70.5” finished chest circumference

      Each kit includes sufficient yarn for the size specified in the color of your choice, along with the pattern. We will purchase a copy of Bolan for you via Ravelry, so you will automatically receive both a printed copy and an emailed PDF. If you would also like to have this pattern in your Ravelry library, please note your Ravelry ID (not your password!) in the "Notes" field in your cart!

      Please note that this kit does not include needles. You will need a US4 24” or longer circular needle and an additional US4 needle in any length for 3 needles bind-off (or size needed to achieve gauge). If you don't already have the appropriate needles at home, you can shop Spun's selection of circular needles here.

      If you'd like to make your kit a gift (for yourself or someone else), or if you just wish to keep your new project tidy and organized, add the Spun Rope Handle Bag with Pin to your order and we will package your purchase accordingly!
