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.

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 www.emmyandlien.com.
