About the pattern:
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.
In the video tutorials, they'll guide you through every step of how to make this sweater from start to finish. Check out the Knit Collage Ravelry page for this style and see the Express Yourself Sweater on a range of beautiful bodies!
