~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Bellecolline is a summer tank that works up quickly in a cotton blend worsted weight yarn. The lower back hem, created with short rows, adds dimension and an air of casual comfort, and a small lace motif at the back of the sweater is a reflection of the vertical lace panels that run up the front.

The lace and cable pattern is both written and charted.
