Classic Elite Montera at

Classic Elite Montera is a soft and rustic one-ply yarn made from a 50/50 blend of wool and llama. This heavy worsted weight yarn comes in a broad palette of bright, solid colors that would look great knit or crocheted into a big warm sweater or cuddly accessories. The closeout price is just $5.49, so with the additional discount, each skein will only be $4.67!

Classic Elite Giselle at

A gorgeous blend of kid mohair, nylon, and wool for just $4.92! Classic Elite’s Giselle is a breathtaking, light, and airy blend of kid mohair, wool, and nylon.  It is extremely versatile and can be used for anything from lacy accessories to beautiful garments that are sure to add a touch of sophistication to your wardrobe. Enjoy special savings on this discontinued yarn

Classic Elite Avenue at

The combination of extrafine merino and silk gives Classic Elite Avenue a soft hand with drape. The merino and silk take the dye differently in this chainette yarn creating a marled effect. Be sure to check out the related patterns tab.

Remember, enter code CLASELCLOS at checkout to save an extra 15% off of Classic Elite closeouts.

Steve’s Yarn Picks

CAL – Valley Cowl

Pattern is laid out with the notes and special stitches on the first page, so you have to go to the second page to know exactly how much to chain.

Foundation double crochet! Not as hard as you think it is
– Directions are very clear as to exactly where to put your hook (through the face of the chain and under the nub) Sounds weird, but makes a lot of sense when you’re looking at your chain
– I found an Addi hook to be the most useful, nearly a necessity: the head is pointy and narrow and fits into the chain easier than other hooks.
– Doing the foundation double crochet exactly as directed makes a very clean edge and the resulting chain is really flexible and stretchy

Gauge is given in Foundation Double Crochets, which is very handy. You can check your gauge as you’re starting your project!
