From Library Journal:

"Elite" refers to Classic Elite, a U.S. yarn company that first became known for its mohair yarns and today produces quality natural-fiber yarns that are well suited to their casual, sporty patterns. Included here are instructions for 60 such cardigan and pullover sweaters designed by a "who's who" of American sweater designers like Norah Gaughan, Deborah Newton, and Michele Rose. Designers emphasize cables, color work, and the use of mohair, wool, and cotton yarns. Sweaters are rated by level of technical difficulty from beginner to very challenging, and most are presented in a full range of sizes from small to extra large. Unisex and children's sweaters abound. Although the patterns call for Classic Elite yarns, ample information is given for alternative yarn choices. Libraries should seriously consider purchasing this title for even very small knitting collections.

From Booklist:

A U.S. company capable of producing European-like knitwear is rare, but Classic Elite, headquartered in an old textile center in Massachusetts, has wisely chosen to retain 11 designers with a broad range of styles and considerable flair. Well represented are Aran, Fair Isle, and multihued patterns for sweaters and coats that can be worn by men or women. Directions are clear, accompanied by color photographs and graphs or charts; level of difficulty is rated from "beginning" to "very challenging." Help in choosing an equivalent yarn is appended. Barbara Jacobs
