Last month, one of my patterns appeared in Interweave Knits Fall 2019!

The theme for the collection in which my cardigan was included was Fredagsmys, (Swedish for Friday night), and was filled with patterns made for having a cozy Friday night snuggled up in knitwear. Kväll, as I understand it, means evening, which is well-suited to the deep blue wool that was used for the main colour. I knit this cardigan in Ancient Arts Lascaux Worsted, which is now my favourite worsted weight yarn, and if you're looking to knit Kväll but are not sure which colours to pick, there are a number of options bundled for you right here:

For the pattern itself, if you don't have a copy yet, head here:

While this sweater certainly can be worn by anyone who wants to wear it, it should nonetheless be noted that the upper five sizes in Kväll are sized for standard men's sizes S (M, L, XL, 2X) as worn with 3 to 3 3/4 inches of ease, so it's important to check the fit in the shoulders by comparing your measurements to the schematic of the finished sweater to ensure that the set-in sleeves will fit you properly.

Kväll features a shawl collar and generous pockets for both practicality and coziness. It's meant to be that feels-like-home cardigan that you put on every evening and wear about the house, but there's nothing stopping you from wearing it out wherever you go as well!
