New from Classic Elite this fall/winter is Toboggan. A blend of 70% merino/ 30% superfine alpaca twisted into a soft, weighty skein of bulky yarn. It's one of the coziest bulky yarns and comes in 16 beautiful colors. A staff favorite.

The booklet for this yarn is full of cute, simple garments and accessories that are quick to make and perfect to wear! Here's a look inside:

Elf is a pointed hat with instructions for two sizes pictured with Rosebud, mittens worked with an after-thought thumb. Both projects use one skein each. Shown in color Garnet, 6758.

Sleigh Ride is a top down raglan cardigan with a ribbed yoke and garter stitch edging. Shown in color Honey, #6750.

Bobsled is a cabled hat with 2 strands held together on the crown for extra warmth. Shown in color Eggplant, #6795.

Flexible Flyer shown in color Teal, #6746. This warm and fuzzy cowl uses two skeins.

Mogul Run is a cute fitted cardigan with big squishy cables. Pictured in color Emerald, #6794.

Here is our Elf in color Fuchsia, #6732. Just took one skein and knits up quick on size US #10 knitting needles. This hat is my favorite, a cute little pointed top will make any cold rainy day fun.

Sprite is another one skein hat with a garter stitch brim that can folded up. Shown in color Periwinkle, #6731. These two hats are hanging up in the shop, come in and try them on!
