It’s time to celebrate Summer and neon colors are one of our favorite ways. Sure any pattern can be worked in any color yarn, but sometimes you simply need to see it to believe it. It can be hard to commit to the bright, bold shades, but we make an argument for the head-turning hues with these four, new patterns.

Nini Pullover by Hannah Fetting

This new pullover from Hannah Fetting of Knitbot is super flattering to many body types, thanks to the customization options offered by the designer. Knit from the bottom up with plenty of positive ease, this sweater can be knit as a trendy cropped top with a rolled neckline or as a classic length staple piece with a hood. Or mix it up to find the perfect sweater for you. Nini is worked in DK weight yarn and is available in eight adult size options.

Shorty Fade Socks by Annette Traves

Neon short socks might be the perfect Summer combo, which is we can’t wait to cast on a pair of Shortie Fade Sox. Worked from the top down with two colors of yarn, these ankle height socks feature a contrasting rolled cuff and heel flap with a fade into the contrasting toe.  Pick your favorite two colors of Fingering weight yarn to get these socks knit and on your feet. We do hope one is a neon.

All The Toppings by Tabetha Hedrick

As part of SweetGeorgia’s new Confections collection, All Of The Toppings is a log-cabin style throw that begs for a stripe or five of neon. Knit this blanket with four bold, contrasting colors starting in the center and in the round, and then knit the stripes around the center picking up stitches as you go. This blanket is knit with DK weight yarn and can be made as large as your neon-loving heart desires.

MJ Crop by Rachel Barish

A top that you can wear now, even during the dog days of Summer, the MJ Crop is a short sleeved, cropped sweater that features a two-color yoke. Work the colorwork with a tonal neon for a statement look or choose a neon speckle for a more boho-chic vibe. The sweater is knit from the top down with light fingering weight yarn and is available nine sizes.
