Express Yourself Sweater Kit

price: $168.00

The Express Yourself Sweater is perfect for anyone wanting to try their hand at a colorwork, top down yoke style sweater.  It's knit with our Serenity Boucle yarn,  a lightweight merino/nylon blend with a cool, stubby texture. This style is perfect for beginner knitters. Looking to tackle colorwork for the first time, let's conquer it together with this design.
