Are Patches On Sweaters Coming back?

I was watching Days of Our lives and Hope had on a stripped sweater with lace at the bottom and patches on the elbows. I haven't seen this in years. What was old is now coming back as they say is soo true.

Cuddlesmama - I purchased two pullover crew neck sweaters from JCP this past fall that had patches on the elbows.

There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise

Always have liked the patches on the elbows. An older man with a pipe, reading a book by a fire in a large chair (tall). That's always the vision I hold in my head of patches on the elbows of a man's sweater.

I have never liked the look of patches on the elbows. As far as Hope's sweater on Days, I didn't like that either.

Mine looked like this - not this color though. The patches are the same knit fabric in a contrast color.

They came back for about a minute a year ago.

I like the idea that the patches are the same knit fabric! (Not faux suede or denim, etc.)
