    1. I am a size L and that is by Philippine standards and I'm sure I'm a size S by US standards. I have not made larger sizes yet. I would try to count the motifs and add evenly depending on the size I want to make.

      Thanks.

  2. Do you make all these motifs separately one by one and then attach them together?

  4. I used #8 crochet thread in this bolero. The size is extra small by US standards. I'm sorry I can not tell how much thread I used because I gave this to my sister in-law as a gift. I can try and ask her to weight it for me and as soon as I have that I will update you. Thank you very much for your support. Have a good day.
