These two designs were just posted on Ravelry.com and on the Classic Elite Yarns website, so they are very new. I loved working with Classic Elite yarns. Each of these yarns are soft and show stitch patterns beautifully. The finished project shapes very well and it is just enough drape to the fabric.
This cropped jacket is shaped beginning at the lowest point of center back. I used short-row technique to produce this shape while making the jacket in one piece. Yarn: Princess.
The vest is also made in one piece without any seams. The Russian-based garter stitch lace and the border are applied here with a thicker yarn Wool Bam Boo. This is my first attempt to apply this technique beyond the Orenburg shawl. It worked for me and I hope you like it as well.
