The Winter 2012/13 issue of Vogue Knitting features a couple of sweaters that were knit in Classic Elite Yarns. The first is the Patchwork Pullover designed by Mari Lynn Patrick.

It uses Montera, La Gran, Kumara and Majestic Tweed. The pattern is available in Small, Medium, Large, X-Large. The color work and textural stitches make for an interesting knit.

The other sweater that was knitted in Classic Elite Yarns is the Round Yoke Tunic by Hitomi Shida.

The tunic was knit in Wool Bam Boo in #1658 Tomato. The pattern is available in Small/Medium and Large/X-Large. Pretty lace panels are separated by columns of stockinette stitch. The short sleeves make it a great layering piece for winter and a perfect tunic for spring.

The tunic is also going to be part of an auction at the upcoming Vogue Knitting Live! to benefit Stitch Red's partner organization - the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute's The Heart Truth. Classic Elite Yarns was happy to donate the yarn for this great cause. If you are going to be in New York for VKLive, please stop by and check out the tunic. If you win, you can still tell people you knit it…we won’t tell anyone.
