Grace bolero pattern by Mlle Pétronille
This delicate Bolero knitting pattern from Mlle Pétronille looks great over a dress.

Cropped shrugs, sometimes called bodiless sweaters or super crops, are trending in knitting and crochet. These tops include a neck and arms, but don’t have a body, making them a faster project and a super fun style element. Dress up a yoga tank or sports bra or use as an arm warmer with a dress

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite super-cropped shrugs in this installment of our trends series called What’s New in Craft.
