Mei-Mei Bolero Jacket

I finished my first project from my new copy of Everyday Crochet by Doris Chan last week. I made the Mei-Mei Crochet Jacket as it was a small sweater and I only had 3 skeins of the yarn I wanted to use. The book is laid out in 4 sections with a base pattern for each section and variations on that base. It can be a little confusing to follow because it jumps from page to page a lot but once you figure out how it works it's not too hard. Highlighting the parts you're going to use before starting would be helpful. I'm pretty happy with the results though I still need to add some kind of closure to it (or not, it looks OK without I think.) Now I think it's about time I tackled something with real sleeves!
