Knitting a heirloom

This weekend I am having a good friend stay with us for a little R&R.
She is getting married in November and asked if I could whip her up a little something to wear for her reception. The piece she wants is the angora bolero that the Duchess Kate wore post wedding. I am SO excited to recreate this!


I know there are a few patterns for this out there already – one specifially from Vogue but I think I'm going to do this from scratch for her. She wants a few modifications and it will be good design practice for me.

 I am looking forward to casting on!
