Hello,

This is my first post and I am very, very new to this so please forgive me
if I am doing it all wrong.

I do wonder if you could please help me.

My Aunt recently passed away (aged 81) and some time ago and many years ago
knitted a bolero/shrug type cardigan for me, I am talking about 12 years
ago.  Unfortunately the pattern as got more or less destroyed, heaven knows
where she kept it and I would dearly like to purchase it.  The pattern is,
Patons No is PBN C 4800, I have goggled searched but have found no results
as I really do not know where to start or how to do it.

However, I have made a small start and e-mail to Patons and got two replies
one form USA (I think) and one from Uk, I also telephoned UK and got the
same answer.  USA said that it was not theirs and UK say that they have no

I have not knitted for some years and would dearly love to knit a
bolero/shrug with short sleeves but every pattern I look at seems to have
long sleeves and is too short for what I would like  (I am 54).   I am
looking for one that is waist length at the back.

Please can anyone help me on both of these requests

Thanking you in advance
Sophie

If you find a pattern you like except for the long sleeves, make them
shorter.

Hi Sofie and welcome
without knowing the name they called the bolero/shrug it's a ***e to
match,  but it'll be out there somewhere, possibly on ebay.

To help, try putting in, bolero pattern into google, and when it loads,
click onto the  Images tab above and scroll through them and see if that
produces one that looks like it, then you'll maybe get somewhere in your
search
all the best
