Add a metallic striped suede elbow patch..

Sew a lace elbow patch?
Looking at what Zoe (of So, Zo..) did with her Lace Yoke Sweatshirt Remake..

Needle Felt Patches
Honestly WTF's DIY needle felted heart elbow patches..
And speaking of needle felting, a friend, (and talented artist herself), introduced me to Lou Tonkin, and her beautiful jumper repair techniques. Lou's work is absolutely magnificent, her repaired jumpers become delicate walking art work.
More of Lou Tonkin's exquisite work can be found here. And if you're not inclined to try needle felting yourself, Lou Tonkin's jumper doctor service, means you could land yourself a beautiful piece of walking art too.
