Collona Cardigan

Issue: 121

Collona Cardiga By Eline Alcocer

Find the pattern in issue 121 of Inside Crochet magazine.

This cardigan is perfect layered over long-sleeved wool dresses, billowing linen tunics, or even a frilly shirt to create a riot of textures. 

●  Blacker Swan DK, 100% wool, 50g/110m/119yds Yarn A: Pebble x 8 (9, 11, 12, 15) balls Yarn B: Balsam Bog x 2 balls
● 3.5mm & 4mm hooks
● Removable stitch marker
● Yarn needle
●  Buttons, 12mm/½in (for amount see Pattern Notes)


Any DK yarn with good drape will work for this pattern. The linen stitch used for the body is very stretchy. If using a yarn containing plant fi bres such as linen or cotton, consider shortening the length of the cardigan by 1–2cm/¼–¾in to prevent it from growing excessively over time.


After years of moving around the world, Eline Alcocer settled herself, her family and her seasonally-inspired design work by the coast in beautiful southern Sweden. Find out more at
