Elton is a great take on a classic cardigan, a lightweight, modern stripe pattern using a 4-ply (fingering) yarn alternated with a laceweight mohair. It is slightly cropped and has a relaxed fit with approximately 40cm of positive ease. It's a great wardrobe basic, that can be worn with almost everything.

You can make your textured 'stripes' the same colour, or have fun playing with a more contrasting look.

When substituting yarn, compare the tension gauge of the pattern and the yarn. Working a tension square to determine the suitability of the yarn as a substitute is recommended - to compare the tension for sizing but also to test whether it creates the fabric you are after.

To determine the quantity needed, compare the total meterage needed in the pattern to the meterage on the substitute.
