Have you seen the movie Bright Star? Put the pattern down right this minute and go find yourself a copy. Poet John Keats and his beloved Fanny Brawne, who he called a "minx" in correspondence (see the letter reproduced at the end of this pattern) are the perfect thing to watch while you knit, especially when Fanny is whipping up some fashionable attire in her room, something for which she was well known. This bolero looks like something she'd have worn.
Alternately, you can buy digital patterns directly on Ravelry to have it placed in your library there. If this printed pattern is out of stock when you order, you may place a backorder and we'll ship as soon as new copies come in.
