An ode to the perfect fall outfit, the Styling a Knit Sweater Kit is a fabulous way to explore embroidery when the weather turns!
Beginners can use basic stitches to make a simple knit sweater, and veterans (or ambitious beginners) can go a few steps further to add intricate cable knit details.
While some embroidery experience is helpful, the pattern was written with all skill levels in mind. If this is your first embroidery project, you may want to try out some practice stitches on a separate piece of fabric before tackling the final design.
This listing is for a complete DIY embroidery kit; you will recieve all of the materials needed to stitch your own sweater outfit from start to finish. If you prefer digital embroidery patterns, you can find the PDF pattern listing for the Styling a Knit Sweater here.
