When day comes to an end the night falls. Slowly the setting sun takes all the colors away, until only darkness remains. But sometimes you can still see that little shade of color left behind. It’s not black, it’s something else too. This sweater captures that feeling of evening turning into night.

Ilta sweater is worked from the top down, shoulders are shaped with short rows for a good fit. The generous sizing makes this sweater lovely to wear, and the simple sweaters like these are always my favorites.
