Classic Elite Booklets

Classic Elite is trying something new with their pattern booklets this fall. They have released yarn-specific books for some of their most popular yarns. Lucky for you, we have all of the booklets at the shop!
Each booklet features one Classic Elite yarn with projects at a range of commitment levels. There is at least one adult-sized sweater in each book, and many contain a vest as well. Each one also has a small project using just two or three balls: socks, fingerless gloves, a hat, a cowl. The designs include colorwork, cabling, lace, and some very interesting textured stitches. At less than $10 for four patterns, the booklets are a great investment if you have fallen in love with a certain yarn and want to try out a few different kinds of projects.

We are working on samples from different books, so stay tuned or come into the shop to check them out in the next few weeks.

Here's a little peek at some of my favorites.
